Reflections of the past, sustainability for the future.

The Zechariah Boodey Farmstead Collaborative (ZBFCOL) is excited to unveil a transformative fundraising initiative. This initiative is set to significantly advance our community and propel the Zechariah Boodey Farmstead Project into its next crucial phase.

An anonymous donor has graciously pledged to match donations made to the Zechariah Boodey Farmstead Collaborative up to $7,500.00 through June 1, 2024.

All gifts received between now and June 1, 2024, whether $10.00 or $1,000.00, will be matched dollar-for-dollar, effectively doubling the impact of each donation. Please also consider asking your employer if they offer a matching gift program and if they would match your donation. Donors now have a unique and impactful opportunity to leverage their generosity and directly support the ZBFCOL mission. Meeting this challenge will support funding for contracting the services of a professional architect.

The Zechariah Boodey Farmstead Project is a historic preservation initiative that began with a colonial cape-style house built in 1769. The house is a national landmark and the birthplace of the Free Will Baptist Church. With 2,980 square feet of meeting space on a three-acre parcel of land, the facility will accommodate 130 individuals and host historical and cultural programs, educational, social, or private and civic events and activities.

Making a donation is simple. Beginning May 1st, 2024, donations will be accepted by visiting the ZBFCOL website at www.zbfcnh.org, contacting Catherine Orlowicz, President of ZBFCOL, by calling 603-859-4643 for more details or mailing a check to ZBFCOL PO Box 45, New Durham NH, 03855. Every contribution, no matter its size, makes a profound difference.
