The Mather Homestead Foundation relies on contributions from our Mather friends who recognize the importance of the Mather Homestead in our local and national history and are dedicated to the preservation of the 1778 home and surrounding seven acres of property as a place for education.  


Donations support the following:

  • Preservation & restoration of the 1778 house, grounds and other buildings.

  • Educational programming including lectures, kids events and more which "bring history to life."

  • Public tours 

  • Oversight of the Mather Homestead Foundation

Please consider joining the Mather Homestead Society!

Donors giving $5,000 and above will join the Mather Homestead 1778 Society and be invited to join us each year for a special celebratory event at the Homestead.  

Please use form to make your gift via credit card.

Alternatively, checks, made out to "The Mather Homestead Foundation" (please remember "Foundation"!) may be mailed to:
