As the Covid-19 crisis evolves, the Village has taken some necessary steps to ensure the Village will be ready to reopen and welcome visitors as soon as possible. Based on the assumption that the Village and our related businesses will remain closed for the foreseeable future, we have reduced our active staffing to essential employees and a handful of administrative staff only. As such, we are currently unable to process donation requests from non-profits. Please check back at a later date. You can review our usual policies below, for future reference.  

As a non-profit institution dedicated to preserving and sharing New England’s history and cultural heritage, Old Sturbridge Village participates in and supports a variety of programs that enhance the lives of those living in our community.

Nonprofit organizations interested in raising funds through a live or silent charity auction may submit a request to Old Sturbridge Village for a Family Admission Pass ($84 value). This package includes one-time daytime admission for two adults and two youth. Please note donated family admission passes may not be used for admission into our annual Christmas by Candlelight program, as that is an evening program requiring a separate ticket. 

Only nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS),  based and providing services in New England, and those not affiliated with a political mission are eligible to submit a request. Eligible nonprofit organizations must complete and submit this online donation request to be considered.
