Challenge Grant To Boost Giving At Penobscot Marine Museum
Marie Underwood, President, Board of Trustees
December 20, 2010 -- A challenge grant aimed at attracting new and bigger donors has given a boost to Maine's oldest marine museum. An anonymous donor has offered to match the gifts of donors who have not given previously to Penobscot Marine Museum's annual appeal, and to match the difference for donors who give more to the current campaign than they gave in prior years.
"This generous anonymous benefactor lets his or her money do the talking," said the museum's president, Marie Underwood. "The ability to double new and increased gifts provides extra encouragement to support our educational programs, historic preservation efforts and research." Mrs. Underwood noted that the museum is about to enter its 75th anniversary year in 2011, and has plans for a number of new exhibits and education initiatives.
