Moving forward together
It takes all of us to move Longyear’s work forward. Your support is vital! For nearly a century, Longyear has benefited from the commitment of members and friends who have cared deeply about its mission to help ensure that an accurate record of Mary Baker Eddy’s life and work is preserved — and we couldn’t be more grateful.
At least fifty percent of our operating budget comes from donations and gifts, monies which cover day-to-day operating costs; help the Museum continue its outreach activities and educational programs, publications, and tours; fund maintenance and care of the historic houses; and underwrite thorough research on a variety of topics designed to reach a widening, receptive audience.
Additional funds are also needed for capital projects each year, including the planned restoration at 400 Beacon Street.
There are many opportunities for members and friends to help sustain Longyear, including:
• Providing gifts of cash or securities as outright gifts or through planned giving arrangements;
• Establishing or adding to Longyear’s endowments to help build our financial base for the future;
• Contributing original books, documents, letters, photographs, and artifacts to the collection.
