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.

Garden Fund

Help to ensure the continued care of the Paine’s gardens during these troubling times. Garden Fund gifts and bouquet sponsorships provide essential funding as follows:

* Bouquet sponsorships of $125, $250, $500, and $1000 supporting the Garden Fund are recognized with a plaque in a selected container throughout the season and may honor a special person, birthday, anniversary, or other occasion or entity.

For questions about specific container locations and availability, please contact Annika Holland by calling (920) 235-6903 ext. 24 or emailing
