Endowment

Your gift to the Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum endowment ensures our future as a museum that provides cultural enrichment on the craft of lightship basket making, an art form whose origins are solely attributable to Nantucket.

The Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum endowment is a vital source of funds for our programs and operations. It provides us the flexibility to pursue promising ideas in today’s fast changing environment.

Gifts to the Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum endowment can be designated for general purposes or earmarked for special projects, such as exhibits, children’s programs, permanent collection or historic house and garden preservation.

We are grateful for gifts to our endowment in any amount. For those with the desire and means to leave a special legacy, with your gift of $25,000 or more you can create an endowed fund named after you or in honor or memory of another. You can choose whether your named fund will support the museum in general or be designated for special purposes, such as those listed above.

Please contact the museum at 508.228.1177 or adminoffice@nantucketlightshipbasketmuseum.org to explore your options in realizing your philanthropic goals.
