For as little as $30 annually, become a part of our work to expand access to local history, art and music! Wistariahurst, as an established resource for local memory and creative expression, provides year-round opportunities for learning, conversation, and entertainment for people of all ages, but we depend on the generosity of our community to do so. For decades Wistariahurst has been supported by a dedicated group of individuals, near and far, who have ensured our growth and increased value to the people of Western Mass.
Membership with The Wistariahurst Foundation is one of the primary ways that we maintain a strong and steady program. The funds raised by membership dollars go directly back into the care and preservation of the historic mansion and grounds and to offer high-quality programming for all. Examples of recent programs supported by Membership include:
- The Wistariahurst High School Internship program
- The Wistariahurst Volunteer Program (currently engaging over 80 individuals!)
- Immigration Experience annual school program
- Garden upkeep and restoration
- Concerts, lectures, and community events
Member benefits include free house tours, discounted tickets to events, subscription to The Vine newsletter and a 10% discount in the Museum Gift Shop.
Wistariahurst is a property of the City of Holyoke, but our work is made possible by the support of The Wistariahurst Foundation. Without the support of donations big and small, we would not be able to offer the wide array of school programs, concerts, lectures, and other programs that we provide throughout the year.
If you are interested in supporting Wistariahurst Museum, please consider a tax-deductible donation. Thank you for giving!
