Giving Tuesday 

Tuesday, November 29, 2016

Each year, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving is set aside as "Giving Tuesday." This is an international day devoted to giving back, and many nonprofit organizations raise funds to support their mission. 

This year, for the first time ever, the Wellesley Historical Society is participating in Giving Tuesday! Our goal is to raise $5,000 by Tuesday, November 29.

Thanks to an early donor, the first $1,000 raised between now and Giving Tuesday will be matched. 

In addition, the first 18 people who donate $250 or more between now and Tuesday, November 29 will be given a $50 gift card to EverPresent, a digitization services company in Newton.

The Historical Society relies upon the generous financial support of private individuals to help us preserve and care for Wellesley’s historical legacy. We hope that you will help the Historical Society continue its important work by supporting the Annual Appeal this year at any level that is right for you.
You can support the Annual Appeal by sending a check payable to Wellesley Historical Society to 229 Washington Street, Wellesley, MA 02481, or by using the Donate button below to donate by credit card or by transfer from your Paypal account.
Your gift really does make a difference. Thank you!
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Executive Director at (781) 235-6690.
