Double the Impact – Join our Matching Funds Donation Drive

In 2024 we are following through on the critical infrastructure improvement initiatives launched in 2023 with our 2024 Matching Funds Grant campaign. This year we are committed to completing several expensive projects including structural renovations, roof and heating/cooling systems replacement and energy efficiency improvements.

The museum has secured matching funds grants totalling $190,000 from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism, so your dollars will be doubled! In total we aim to raise $400,000 to perform vital updates to the Sandwich Glass Museum’s facilities, in order to better serve the community.


We invite you to participate in this transformative initiative and help us reach our fundraising goal. Your donation, when matched dollar-for-dollar, will have an exponential impact on the preservation and maintenance efforts of the Sandwich Glass Museum.

Why Your Donation Matters

Like most small museums across the U.S., the Sandwich Glass Museum depends largely on the financial support of the community. We invite you to express your support to ensure we can continue showcasing both our vibrant glass making past and providing exhibition space for contemporary glass artists.

The Sandwich Historical Society’s Glass Museum is independently owned and operated. All operational expenses including staffing, insurance, utilities and facilities maintenance, are borne by the Sandwich Historical Society.

Your generosity will help keep this incredible art form alive!

Our Priorities

Our highest priorities this year are to sustain and grow our operations. We are undertaking major facility renovations and repairs as well as investing in programs focused on building and enhancing our community reach.

Please consider a donation to our 2024 Matching Funds Donation Campaign. Your generous gift will be instantly matched dollar-for-dollar by the State of Massachusetts.

Thank you in advance for your help in reaching our fundraising goal!
