Corporate Giving

Northampton County Historical and Genealogical Society invites regional and national companies, businesses and foundations to become members of our non-profit organization. This support enables NCHGS to provide educational and historical interpretive programs, tours, and special events that benefit the residents of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and beyond, including many of your staff and customers. In addition, your annual membership contribution supports four of our properties including the Sigal Museum with over 30,000 square feet of exhibition and public space; the 1753 Bachmann Publick House (the City of Easton's oldest remaining building); the 1833 Mixsell-Illick House (with both exhibition and invaluable museum storage space); and the 1807 Jacob Nicholas House (managed and administered in cooperation with the City of Easton).
