Support Us

Thank you for supporting Freeport Historical Society
We appreciate your support of Freeport Historical Society (FHS), a non-profit, tax-exempt organization.

Your options for donating

Building Fund

The Building Fund represents your opportunity to invest in our downtown and continue to shape Freeport into a center for history, arts, and culture. We need an additional $500,000 to complete this project that will protect the collection, make our buildings accessible, stabilize the barn, and provide research/library space.

Annual Fund

With no fundraising events due to the pandemic, your donation to our Annual Fund matters now more than ever. Your Annual Fund donations support maintenance and repairs to our two architectural gems- Harrington House and Pettengill Farm; our public programs, lectures, workshops, and exhibits; our collections care and acquisitions; and to operations. 

Matching Gifts and Grants

Does your company offer a matching gifts/grants program for your donation? As a tax-exempt organization, FHS qualifies to participate in matching gifts/grants programs. Contact the administrator of the program at your company for the necessary form.

We are also able to accept and grateful for donations of stock. Please contact us if you wish to do so.
