The U.S.S. Constitution Museum, which serves as the educational voice of the ship, teaches the youth and adults of our community, as well as hundreds of thousands of visitors critical lessons about the birth and growth of the American democratic system (as well as the American Navy and Marine Corps)."

In-Kind Donations

Many companies choose to support the Museum by providing goods/services either free of charge or at a significant discount. Such in-kind support helps offset the cost of running our educational programming and  many of our events.  In-kind donations allow more funds to be used for our educational programming. In-kind donors can receive recognition in the Annual Report, any print pieces associated with event (for event-related donations), as well as on the Museum's website.

If you would like to make an in-kind donation, please contact Laura O'Neill, the Director of Bicentennial Development at loneill@ussconstitutionmuseum.org or (617) 426-1812 ext. 112.

 

Matching Gift Donations

Corporations also support the Museum by matching contributions made by their employees. By encouraging their employees to donate to the USS Constitution Museum, the corporations help provide the funding needed for educational programs at the Museum.
