CONCORD, MASS.- The Concord Museum recently announced Doris Kearns Goodwin as the Honorary Chair of the public phase of Revolution: The Campaign for the Concord Museum, which will support a new 13,000 square foot Education Center and courtyard, a new Gateway to Concord Orientation Center, and expanded Museum gallery space to showcase the Museum’s extensive collections. Goodwin, a world renowned presidential historian, Pulitzer Prize-winning author, and Concord resident, is known as “America’s historian-in-chief.”

We are thrilled that Doris Kearns Goodwin is serving as Honorary Chair of the Campaign for the Concord Museum,” said Executive Director Margaret Burke. “Doris is a strong advocate for the value of history and history education. Her leadership signals the importance of what we are trying to achieve at the Museum.”

The new Education Center and Museum expansion is being developed to address the Museum’s burgeoning needs. Over 12,000 students and teachers participated in the Museum’s curriculum-based school programs last year – nearly double the number of students served in 2011. The Museum through its Paul Reveres Ride program provides free transportation to the Museum and waives program fees for more than 3,000 students from Lowell, Lawrence, and Everett.

Doris explained, “For someone who has loved history for as long as I can remember, to enjoy and share the riches of the Concord Museum is such a pleasure. I’m proud to be involved in helping expand the physical space and the reach of this museum that tells not only the history of Concord, my home town for the last 40 years, but also the history of this country.”

To date the Campaign for the Concord Museum has raised $11.7 million towards the $13 million goal. Approximately $10 million of the Campaign funds will support the new Education Center and Museum renovations. The remaining $3 million will be added to the Museum’s endowment to support enhanced programs.
