Leadership Giving Circles

Founders Circle and Great Point Circle

Our Founders Circle members are a network of friends who believe in The Trustees mission to protect and share our special places across Massachusetts. They are leadership members who provide critical support of the organization’s general operations through annual donations to one of our Circle levels, outlined below.

Founders Circle members are vitally important partners who ensure The Trustees continues to thrive and grow. We are proud to offer members of our Founders Circle special opportunities to interact with our organizational leadership and expert staff; private reservation tours and unique experiences on our properties; invitations to events year-round; insider communications; and recognition in our annual report. Other benefits may be offered dependent on level of support.
