The newly-established Griffin Giving Circles program is named after local schoolmaster, tavern keeper, store owner, and Oysterponds diarist, Augustus Griffin (1767-1866), who lived on Village Lane. He was a descendant of Jasper Griffin of England, one of the North Fork’s first settlers and, thus, symbolizes OHS’s connection and commitment to the breadth and depth of the Oysterponds community’s history.

 

There are five circles or giving levels:

 

• Platinum Circle – $10,000

• Gold Circle – $7,500

• Silver Circle – $5,000

• Bronze Circle – $2,500

• Friend Circle – $1,000

 

As a Founding Member of the Griffin Giving Circles program and by making this fully-tax-deductible contribution, you will not only be taking a leadership role in fortifying OHS’s financial health but, by joining other Oysterponds leaders who have become Founding Members, you will be making a most meaningful pledge of support to the East Marion and Orient community.

 

As a Founding Member…

 

• You will receive special recognition on our website and in all other OHS materials

• Your name will be permanently and prominently displayed on a brick in the Griffin Giving Walkway on our beautiful campus

• You will be an invitee to a Founding Member dinner (once it’s safe to gather together!) where we will unveil the Griffin Giving Walkway

• You (and up to three guests) will be invited to take advantage of a very special private tour of the OHS campus and collections with our curator

 

Please choose your giving level by clicking on the Griffin Giving Circles link below.

 

As always, if you would prefer, you may send a check to:  Oysterponds Historical Society, PO Box 70, Orient, NY 11957.
