Ways to Give


Together, with the support of friends like you, we rally our community around saving the unique character of Essex County: the thousands of historic, cultural, and natural places that were crucial in shaping our nation; the places that led to this region's designation as a National Heritage Area by an act of Congress in 1996; the places that make Essex County like nowhere else. Your support is crucial to growing the efforts to save the character of this special region. Donate today >>


Your support matters. Why?  Because support from our members is reinvested directly into our communities. Your Essex Heritage membership dues and/or donations will be put to immediate use to award grants to worthy organizations all over Essex County AND to reinforce many programs and initiatives that sustain the precious historic, natural and cultural places found within the Essex National Heritage Area. 

Learn about our different membership levels and benefits, and determine which level is perfect for you!
