Annual Fund

When you donate to the American Textile History Museum, you are giving to something very special. And your support of ATHM means more now than ever. We have temporarily closed our exhibits to the general public in early 2016, seeking to restructure. With your support, we will preserve and protect the Museum’s unparalleled core collection of American artifacts and continue to fulfill our mission.

We ask that all who share a love of and concern for America’s textile history and heritage to donate today and help us to preserve our nation’s past.

Please make a donation online today.

Every gift makes a difference.

Planned Giving

The American Textile History Museum (ATHM) was founded through the support of the late Caroline Stevens Rogers. Her gifts were the foundation for what has become an internationally renowned collection of textile industry machinery, documents, products as well as clothing and home textiles. You can be a part of ensuring that ATHM is strong and vibrant for future generations by making a bequest to the Museum in your will, trust, or other estate plans.

Estate gifts support the Museum’s endowment which is the most valuable funding the Museum can receive. Endowments keep giving, year after year; they also keep growing, since only a portion of the income they generate is used annually. By making this important decision, you will be leaving a lasting legacy and you will also be recognized as a member of the Stevens Society.

If you are considering the best way to give to ATHM, we would be happy to assist you and your advisors to fashion a gift to meet your needs. Please call Denise Webb at 978-441-0400 x247 or email at dwebb@athm.org for more information.
