Adopt an Artifact

The Historic Beverly “Adopt an Object” program provides an opportunity to our generous supporters – individuals, families, organizations and businesses –to support important and necessary conservation work through tax-deductible donations.

Historic Beverly cares for hundreds of thousands of objects. Many of these objects require specialized treatment by a professional conservator. Your donation in any amount will help support the museum’s mission of preserving artifacts and other historical materials relating to the history and heritage of Beverly, and you will be acknowledged in our newsletter and in our annual report.

There are numerous projects in need of funding that would benefit from your patronage.  Even small donations can contribute greatly to making our collection more accessible for teaching, research and display.
