The Museum’s facilities, diverse exhibitions, educational programs, and community events offer various partnership opportunities for companies and philanthropists. Our staff will work with you to create a unique partnership that will meet your business objectives and the Museum’s needs, delivering the greatest value return on your investment.
Consider sponsoring a fundraising event for the Vermont Granite Museum. Not only will you receive a tax benefit for your donation, but you will also receive company exposure through free media coverage. Sponsoring a benefit event for the Museum will also give you an opportunity to engage your employees and old and new business partners in a social setting outside of the workplace, while encouraging teamwork and goodwill.
Cash contributions to the Vermont Granite Museum are always appreciated and put to good use.
Donate goods or services
Annually, the Vermont Granite Museum spends thousands of dollars in equipment, supplies, and services to operate the Museum. If you would like to donate goods and services to support the Museum’s general operations, please contact us to learn more about how you can help.
Donate to our collection
The Vermont Granite Museum is always collecting historical objects, machinery, images, documents, books, clothing, and other material things to enhance the Museum’s collection. The Museum’s goal is to collect objects and archives that relate to the heritage of Vermont’s granite industry and the people and companies that made it possible. When donating an object to the Museum consider setting up endowment funds to care for the object or provide funds for cleaning, repairing, and storing the object.
Trust / annuity
Although cash contributions to the Vermont Granite Museum are always appreciated, there are other creative and flexible options that can benefit you and the Museum. You can help ensure the Museum’s future by creating a charitable trust or gift annuity while you are living or by including the Museum in your will.
Throughout the year, the Vermont Granite Museum offers unpaid internship opportunities for high school, college, and graduate students. Our unpaid internships are designed to suit the intern’s interests. Projects and areas of interest that interns may study include:
Building and grounds maintenance
Development and fundraising
If you have a few hours a week and would like to help support a nonprofit, community organization, we encourage you to consider volunteering with us.
The Vermont Granite Museum is a wonderful place to learn and explore. We seek volunteers interested in gardening, carpentry, trail maintenance, research, cataloging collections, helping out with educational programs and special events, and assisting with office tasks. Volunteers are integral to the Vermont Granite Museum’s success and are offered great benefits, including free membership to the Museum, an annual recognition event, and more.
