Support The Maryland Historical Society on #GivingTuesday!


Show your support of The Maryland Historical Society by donating to #GivingTuesday on December 3!

We are especially proud to announce that due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar! Supporters will also get some great deals from local restaurants.

#GivingTuesday is a first-of-its kind effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners - charities, families, businesses and individuals - to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world.    

Supporting the Maryland Historical Society provides us with the resources needed to be certain that future generations understand our state's past and have access to the artifacts and documents that connect them to that history. Your support makes up more than one-third of our entire budget, so the more we receive, the more we can give in preservation and programming.

You'll hear from us on Tuesday, when #GivingTuesday officially begins, but if you don't want to wait until then to support us, you don't have to! Simply click on this link to pledge your support in advance.

Our sincerest thanks for your generosity, and Happy Holidays!
