Thanks to the Trustees of the Robert W. Wilson Charitable Trust, we're honored to announce the Robert W. Wilson 2020 Challenge! If you can help Shelburne Farms raise $500,000 in new and increased gifts before year's end, the Trustees will contribute an additional $250,000! The pandemic has hugely impacted the Farm, and your support will help bridge the nonprofit’s $2.3 million projected shortfall, and build financial resiliency heading into 2021. Please help us meet the challenge by becoming a contributing member or making an additional gift to the Emergency Resiliency Fund.
