Donations are another way our members and visitors honor the Museum, the Islands and their friends and loved ones. Gifts of all sizes help us further our mission. We welcome your donation in person when you visit us during the summer season. You may also mail your gift.


If you would like to direct your gift towards a specific program, please contact our Board President or Museum Director to discuss how your generosity can best benefit CHS.

We love matching gifts too. Many companies support the arts and education by offering to match employee contributions. Please contact your company’s HR department and ask for a matching gifts form. Include it with your contribution and we’ll take it from there.

Tarpaulin Cove Lighthouse

As the custodians of the Tarpaulin Cove Lighthouse on Naushon, we maintain a separate account for the lighthouse’s maintenance and care. If you would like to donate support to the lighthouse, please click here.

Annual Appeal

At the end of each year, we reach out to our members and friends to thank you for being part of our community and to ask you to consider CHS in your year-end giving. The Annual Appeal gifts contribute significantly to our yearly budget and provide a meaningful way to keep Cuttyhunk and the Islands in your thoughts all winter long. Consider a gift “in honor of “ or “ in memory of” to recognize your favorite on or off-islander.
