“Amazon Smile”

Amazon started a donation program for charitable organizations called “AmazonSmile”, to which the Historical Society of Wilmington has been registered for a while now. If you have not already, you can sign up to have Amazon donate a percentage of your purchases to the Historical Society of Wilmington by completing the following steps:

Go to Smile.Amazon.com and sign into your existing Amazon account.

You will be asked to select a charity.

Using the search option, search for “Historical Society of Wilmington Vermont Inc”.

Select the appropriate listing, making sure that you have chosen the one based in Wilmington, VT as there are historical societies registered for other Wilmingtons around the country as well.

Amazon will now donate a percentage of each purchase you make via Smile.Amazon.com to the charity selected at the time of purchase.

Please note that only purchases made via the Smile.Amazon.com web address qualify. Purchases made at Amazon.com or international Amazon.com web address will  not count for chairable donations. Replace your exciting Amazon.com bookmark with a Smile.Amazon.com bookmark to be sure all of your purchases count.

Stonewall Fundraiser!

The society is currently raising funds for the rebuild of our stonewall that runs along the society’s property and Lisle Hill Road.  This spring two sections of the wall started sliding down the bank, we were in hopes of having it completed in time for OHW but that was way out of line with timing and funds.  Needless to say it’s going to be a costly project and we have just started to raise funds for it. 

If you would like to help us reach our $15,000 goal please mail your tax deductible donations to:
