We know you value the power of Kimball Jenkins. Now, we are asking you to support and sustain that power with a tax-deductible donation to our Annual Fund. Your support at any level makes a huge difference. And, thanks to an enthusiastic benefactor, we’re offering a 100% challenge match for all donations between $250 and $5,000, made before December 31st. Your gift will be doubled automatically – doubling your impact on the lives of so many people.

Every time you enter – or even drive by - the iconic Kimball Jenkins campus, you can witness the power it has on the hearts and minds of the thousands who visit each year.

Social Impact.   Imagine the impact of an arts scholarship on a New American girl, smiling as she holds up a portrait she drew of her mother.  Think of the teens in our free art & mentoring program, building confidence as they work in real art studios, funded by a grant from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, and caring people like you.

Creative Energy.  Through the Yellow House windows, you glimpse some of our many art students, people of all ages and abilities advancing their skills and building creative community. 

Preservation.  The power of historic preservation shines through the gleaming new copper gutters on the Carriage House roof, installed by skilled craftsmen who preserved the original Munson slate with a grant from the NH Land & Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP) and donors like you.

Community Gatherings.  You see community gatherings of all kinds -- from fairy & gnome festivals to historic mansion tours, from weddings to celebrations of life, from birthday parties to corporate and nonprofit meetings – and you know everyone’s welcome at Kimball Jenkins.

Treasure.  You feel the power that the towering sycamore and copper beech trees, wide lawns, fine brick mansion and extraordinary architecture have on visitors young and old.

Please consider supporting our mission of enabling people to pursue activities that enrich their lives and contribute to the cultural well-being of our community.
