Annual Appeal 2016: Your gift makes a difference!

September 26, 2016

What if something you do today could help ensure that an accurate record of Mary Baker Eddy’s life and work is preserved for future generations? That the Discoverer, Founder, and Leader of Christian Science is never forgotten or marginalized?

It can!

With your gift to Longyear’s Annual Appeal, you’re helping us keep Mrs. Eddy before the public through such endeavors as:

  • Nationwide screenings of our new historical documentary film “‘Follow and Rejoice’:  Mary Baker Eddy — The Chestnut Hill Years.”
  • Educational programs for adults and young Christian Scientists, including Sunday School, high school, and college students, as well as campers and counselors.
  • Maintaining eight historic houses that trace Mrs. Eddy’s spiritual journey as the Discoverer, Founder, and Leader of Christian Science.
  • Keeping our newsletters and website — frequented by thousands of visitors from over 150 nations annually — brimming with historical articles based on original research.

The legacy that Mary Beecher Longyear left for the establishment and perpetuation of the Museum, along with other investments, generates one third of our annual operating budget. Each year, we need to raise the remaining two-thirds of that budget. We can’t do it without you! Your gift to this year’s Annual Appeal — regardless of size — is very much appreciated and greatly needed.

You can make a gift online at, by calling 800.277.8943, ext. 220, or by using the enclosed envelope. Thank you for your ongoing support of Longyear!
