The Frost Place Joins the #GivingTuesday Movement

The Frost Place will again participate in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday is celebrated as a way to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

The Frost Place is Robert Frost’s former home in Franconia, NH where he and his family lived from 1915-1920. It is now a permanent home and museum for poets and poetry dedicated to honoring the legacy of Robert Frost while encouraging the creation and appreciation of poems. Each year, The Frost Place hosts several summer poetry programs, two annual poetry competitions, two specialized scholarships, and opens the house-museum for visitors to see where Robert Frost lived and worked.

As a small nonprofit, The Frost Place heavily relies on individual contributions and fundraising opportunities such as #GivingTuesday. It is a pleasure for all involved with The Frost Place to offer program participants and museum visitors the highest quality experience possible. This requires a considerable financial commitment, often more than there are resources for. By donating to The Frost Place this #GivingTuesday, you can help improve these programs, facilities, and the overall experience that The Frost Place has to offer.

Please consider supporting The Frost Place this #GivingTuesday. You may do so by donating online, by phone at (603) 823-5510, or by mail to The Frost Place, PO Box 74 Franconia, NH 03580.
