Support

Equality • Pacifism • Community • Sustainability • Responsible Land Stewardship • Simplicity • Embodiment of a Spiritual Ideal • Quality in Work

Aren’t these values you hold dear?  Don’t you see too little of them in the world around you?  Would you like to see these values have more impact on our modern lives?  Your gift to Hancock Shaker Village will help make that possible.

These are the values embraced by the Shakers—a group of ordinary individuals with deeply-held religious convictions who chose to gather in community to live a principled life.

Read the list again and consider how these same values resonate for us today:  think green building, renewable resources, local agriculture, respect for the environment, reducing consumption, the demand for peace and equality, the renewed interest in fine artisanship.

We think you’ll agree . . . the lessons of these remarkable people have much to teach us contemporary Americans.  Our mission at Hancock Shaker Village is to preserve the experience and values of the Shakers, and bring their profound impact to your family and your neighbors throughout our region.

Almost 60,000 people visit HSV annually, including nearly 8,000 children who enter free of charge and benefit from fun and educational activities.  Your support enables us to continue our Kids Are Free policy and to continue programming of relevance to you such as the:

  • Young Shakers Tour
  • Attic Access Tour
  • Honey Extraction
  • Oval Box workshop
  • Country Fair

Joining Hancock Shaker Village provides you with many benefits.  And, your support will help us provide more opportunities for a broader audience to connect with and learn about the Shaker perspective and way of living.

Questions?  Don’t hesitate to contact our Development Department at 413-443-0188 with any questions you have about giving to HSV.

Yes, your gift to the Village is tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.  We advise you to contact your tax adviser for further details.

In addition to underwriting our Kids Are Free policy and funding programming that is important to you, your contribution will serve an immediate need by supporting day-to-day operations at the Village:  feeding the animals on the farm, maintaining our historic buildings, conserving and interpreting our spectacular collection of artifacts, and managing our grounds and gardens.
