Give to the Paine

Make a donation to support the mission and programs of the Paine.

The Paine is a nonprofit organization that relies upon the generosity of people like you! An endowment provides approximately one-third of the Paine’s annual funding, and the remaining two-thirds is raised through donations and fees.  The Paine relies upon a breadth of generous individuals and organizations to support the ongoing care and programs of the museum.

The Paine needs your help to fund the museum’s broad and vital scope of educational programs, art exhibitions, garden displays, and historic preservation.  Gifts to the organization can be designated to support the Annual Fund, Education Fund, Garden Fund or other aspects of the Paine Art Center and Gardens.

Annual Fund

Gifts to the Annual Fund support the full scope of the Paine’s annual activities, including the continued care of the historic house, art collections, and gardens as well as the presentation of outstanding exhibitions and educational programs.  Annual Fund gifts are fully tax-deductible.



Education Fund

Gifts to the Education Fund support quality learning experiences for children about historic architecture, art and nature.  Gifts also help ensure that children of all economic backgrounds are able to participate in the educational programs.  Education Fund gifts are fully tax-deductible.


Garden Fund

Gifts to the Garden Fund support the ongoing care and enhancement of the Paine’s extraordinary gardens.  The Paine maintains over twenty garden areas with thousands of plant specimens for public learning, enjoyment, and inspiration.  Gifts to the Garden Fund are fully tax-deductible.




The Paine offers numerous other ways to support the organization, from events and sponsorships to special fundraising initiatives.  For more information about other giving opportunities, please call (920) 235-6903.  The tax-deductible portion of these gifts may vary.
