More Ways to Give

Monthly Recurring Gifts

Monthly recurring gifts offer the opportunity to make gifts that add up over time and provide the Atheneum with a predictable source of support. In this way, a monthly giving plan may allow you to make a larger impact on the library than might otherwise have been possible. Payments will be automatically charged to your credit or debit card on the monthly anniversary of your original gift. To set up a recurring gift schedule, visit the Annual Giving page or contact Lisa Lothian, at 508-228-1110 x107.
