Annual Appeal 2020

————
2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, but thankfully we were able to adapt quickly to these strange times and continue our mission. We have worked harder than ever to earn your support through putting out more FREE content to serve both our local audience and now a broader virtual one.

Carriage House Thrift Shop – We were lucky enough to be able to safely open our thrift shop this summer and welcome over 4,000 visitors. They happily purchased your donations of vintage objects to help the museum. That’s a 50% increase in attendance from last year!

Community Partnerships – Partnerships are not exactly new with us, but this year it became a big part of what we did.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Museum as a Park – The Museum’s Spectacular Grounds have been enjoyed by the public who are eagerly seeking open spaces and fresh air. We offer views of Southampton’s heritage at the Rogers Mansion, Thomas Halsey Homestead and Conscience Point. If you would like a more in-depth tour of the Rogers Mansion or the Thomas Halsey Homestead, please contact Laurie to set up your appointment via phone, (631) 283-2494 x300

Virtual Programming – Aside from our YouTube page, we began hosting virtual lectures multiple times a month with a mix of volunteers, paid speakers and museum staff creating new and interesting talks. We also created a Blog on our website to share in depth research projects, old exhibit materials and brand new virtual exhibits. Below are examples of these virtual programs:

These were all made possible by the museum’s many dedicated volunteers, trustees and advisors. They are your friends, neighbors and maybe even family. Your support reinforces their commitment to giving us their valuable time.

Please help us with a generous contribution to our annual appeal.
Southampton’s long and diverse history has many lessons for our community today and in the future.
