Griffin Giving Circles

 

 

 

The  Griffin Giving Circles program is named after local schoolmaster, tavern keeper,
store owner, and Oysterponds diarist, Augustus Griffin (1767-1866).

 

 

The Griffin Giving Circles program is a unique membership initiative that supports needed investments in our collection, including OHS’s historical buildings and grounds, and our ongoing mission to bring the community together.

 

You can choose from five different giving levels (listed below), starting at $1,000. All gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Thank you for your consideration of this important program!
