Your financial support makes a difference. Every donation counts!

We can’t do it alone. As a free, educational nonprofit organization, we rely on a variety of funding sources, including government grants, private foundations, and you. Your contributions are critical in helping the Waterworks Museum meet its mission. We look to you to help us provide high-quality public programs, engaging exhibits, and educational opportunities for visitors of all ages.

You can donate to a specific project, or make an unrestricted gift, both of which are tax-deductible. We appreciate every contribution to the Museum! The Metropolitan Waterworks Museum, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, nonprofit corporation.

Volunteering at the Waterworks Museum

In addition to donations, we are reaching out for something even more valuable – your time.

If you love history, architecture, and big machines, you will love being a volunteer here. Be among the first to see great exhibitions, assist with public programs, and implement activities that tell Boston’s water stories. Whether you are a greeter, a facilitator, or a researcher, or if you are interested in collections, marketing, or public relations, we welcome your assistance. We will provide training for all of these opportunities.

Volunteers are a key part of the Waterworks Museum. Your help and expertise are appreciated, whether you can volunteer once a week, once a month, or once a year. If you are interested in making a donation or volunteering, please contact us at 617-277-0065 or amanda.fisher@waterworksmuseum.org.
