Make a One-Time Gift

This is an important time for all of us. Our future depends on our ability to connect…to connect our unique history (over 300 years of our collective American story) to those we serve. Your first connection was a visit: perhaps as part of a tour. Maybe you chaperoned your daughter’s school visit, or attended WineFest or our acclaimed Speaker Series. Let’s continue this relationship. Your contribution ensures the story and our friendship continues.

Make a Monthly Gift

We often hear, “How can one person make a difference?” It’s overwhelming, isn’t it? But, as it turns out, the generosity of the family of man is our most precious gift. Supporting Sotterley with a monthly contribution allows us to reduce administrative costs and ensures the continuation of education programs for school children, preservation projects to enlighten and enrich, and to share stories that remind us: we can make a difference. Stay in touch with a monthly gift; it feels good!

You can apply your monthly giving toward a Sotterley Membership!
