The Holden Giving Program


Become a member with your gift to the Holden Giving Program. The Holden Giving Program is a unified giving program with membership at the core of each gift.  We combined membership and annual fund into one request. Your gift provides general operating support for Holden. Gifts from individuals, businesses and foundations keep Holden open and all its programs running. Your annual gift and membership help support programming and services that would otherwise not be possible.
