In Addition To Monetary Donations, We Kindly Accept Donations of Services and Goods As Well

Your expertise and resources may be of help to The Bridges House. Consider donating time if you are unable to make a monetary donation.

We are proud to say that many necessary renovations to The Bridges House have been successfully completed. However, this historic home is still in need of funds to keep it operating to its full potential. In order to keep the space functional, we need help from donors of all kinds. While monetary donations are so appreciated, we understand that it may not be in everyone’s budget to give a cash gift. That’s why Friends Of The Bridges House is also very thankful to those who have donated other needed goods and/or services in recent years.

In January of 2016, we launched a brand new website thanks to the help of web design and digital marketing firm Danconia Media, based out of New Hampshire. Danconia Media donated their time and talents to ensure that The Bridges House has a website that matches the elegance of the home itself. Now, online visitors are greeted with an array of photos and are able to easily navigate the site, as it is now more user-friendly. This up-to-date design allows The Bridges House to have an attractive and modern online presence.

There are other goods and services that Friends Of The Bridges House hope to obtain. Currently, we are in need of time-period furniture to fill all of the rooms in The Bridges House. We also require audio/visual equipment to aid in tours and meetings and to keep the space useful in a digital world. While the house is used as a meeting facility for government and business purposes, it also serves as an event venue for community members, non-profits, and other civic organizations. We want to ensure that the space remains functional so that it can continue to be used and enjoyed by a variety of visitors.

As with any historic property, maintenance is a big priority. In order to maintain the home, we need to stay on top of necessary updates, both major and minor. Even small maintenance tasks, such as cleaning, landscape maintenance, and snow removal, can become costly. We welcome any kind of donation that may ease these types of expenses.

Interested in donating goods or services? Please contact Kelley Potenza at (978) 808-1066.

The photos displayed here represent the way that we hope The Bridges House can look with the help of our donors. The furniture featured in the pictures is, unfortunately, not the property of The Bridges House and was used only for the staging of these photos. We are graciously accepting donations of time-period furniture and historic artwork in order to get the interior of the home looking as elegant as these photographs suggest.
