Special Restoration Projects and Sponsorships

Restoration, repair and maintenance of the numerous buildings, architectural structures, statuary, water features and more is key to preserving Mrs. Thompson’s beloved estate for the public to enjoy. But since our non-profit receives no tax monies from New York State, such capital improvements present a serious challenge. Providing access to all the historical treasures on the grounds is part of preserving her legacy and Sonnenberg is eager to develop long-term endowments to meet that goal. Please consider providing individual, corporate or community support of the following special projects. Your financial support is critical.

In addition to special projects, Sonnenberg welcomes sponsorship of our special events or operational activities. Your tax-deductible donation can underwrite the cost of producing a particular special event for the public, provide needed goods or services, assist in brand marketing, or even boost the beauty of the estate through sponsorship of a specific garden. To explore how you or your company can partner with Sonnenberg, please contact Development Manager Lisa Scott at (585) 394-4922.
