2022 Annual Appeal

As 2022 begins, we wanted to take a moment to thank our supporters for their dedication to the Sudbury Historical Society year in and out. Thanks to the community support, we have been able to fully renovate the historic Loring Parsonage into the Sudbury History Center and Museum! Three museum galleries, archival storage spaces, offices with research areas and our 01776 Gift Shop opened to the public this past July. Since last summer, the enthusiasm of museum guests has been so wonderful and rewarding to see. If you have not yet visited the galleries and gift shop, make time to do so. We think you will leave most impressed!

Mid-December we embarked on our 2021-2022 annual appeal. Our goal is to raise $20,000 during this appeal cycle. Would you be willing to make a special contribution to the Sudbury Historical Society this winter?

The SHS annual appeal funds a variety of expenses, including collections management, staff training and salaries, program expenses and exhibit design. With your support, we can continue to impact our community in a lasting way. Please join us by making your tax-deductible gift on our online donation page located on the homepage of our website or by sending a check to the Sudbury Historical Society; 288 Old Sudbury Road, Sudbury, MA 01776.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we appreciate your membership and consideration of a gift to the 2021-2022 Annual Appeal!

This November and December we added many holiday themed items to our ever-growing offerings. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and emails for listings of these new and exciting products.
