Celebrate Framingham on #GivingTuesday

Giving Tuesday FHC

The Framingham History Center is participating in #GivingTuesday for the first time this year. We hope to benefit from this global day of giving observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving.

Our #GivingTuesday goal is $5,000 which will help us launch our 2015-2016 Framingham History Fund. This annual fund is at the foundation of the support we require to continue to provide our educational programming, exhibitions, preservation efforts and community-wide events.

Be sure to watch our Facebook page and Twitter feed for why you should support the Framingham History Center on #GivingTuesday, December 1st.

Click here to give! The FHC thanks you in advance for your support.
