Linden Place Virtual Tour

Please become a Friend of Linden Place and share our vision for preserving and restoring one of America's architectural treasures. The Friends of Linden Place, non-profit organization, was created in 1989, based on the urgent need to save the magnificent 1810 DeWolf mansion from destruction or development. Due to the formidable drive of the earliest volunteers, the "crown jewel" of Bristol's historic waterfront district was saved and is today maintained through fundraisers, grants and memberships.

This holiday season, our gift to our treasured members includes:

* Members only preview party!  Thursday, December 6, 2012 from 5-7 PM featuring light refreshments, live music and a first look at Linden Place Mansion decorated for the holiday season!  RSVP required.

* FREE Tours of the mansion for members!

* Great discounts at the Museum Store!

A Donor Bill of Rights

PHILANTHROPY is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To ensure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the non-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

I. To be informed of the organizationís mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.

VI. To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.

II. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organizationís governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities

VII. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.

III. To have access to the organizationís most recent financial statements.

VIII. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.

IV. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.

IX. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.

V. To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.

X. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.
