Make a Major Donation ($3,000 or more)

Restoration of the depot and the addition of the pavilion and sculpture garden is a multi-year undertaking. Individuals, companies, businesses, and civic organizations can send a clear message about their long-term investment in the community by making a major donation. These types of donations:

  • demonstrate a commitment to giving back to the community.
  • save a piece of Northfield’s history and heritage for future generations.
  • provide a valuable, multi-use resource for the community
  • provide an opportunity for a matching gift fund drive

For information, please contact Alice Thomas.
