How We Work
Hours & Directions
The Mariposa Museum is proud to receive grants from the following groups and businesses:
C&S Wholesale Grocers
C&S has helped to support performances of the play, Dreaming Again, by the NH Theatre Project, at middle and high schools in Keene and around the state. Written by Genevieve Aichele, this live play brings to life the experiences of immigrants to the Granite State over the last century, exploring reasons why people leave their homelands and what it's like to create a new life in this strange place called New Hampshire! Dreaming Again was commissioned by the NHHC as a part of their Fences & Neighbors series.
Endowment for Health

NH Charitable Foundation
NHCF has generously supported touring of the live play Dreaming Again to middle and high schools around NH in the 2013-14 academic year. The play has introduced close to 3,000 students as well as teachers and administrators to the experiences of immigrants to NH over the last two centuries.
The New Hampshire Humanities Council (NHHC)
For nearly four decades, the NHHC has been connecting people to culture, history, places, ideas, and one another. The Mariposa is the recipient of numerous Humanities to Go grants that support special presentations by humanities scholars and performers at the musuem. This year (2013-14 academic year), we are thrilled to have received a major grant supporting a series of Professional Development Workshops for NH Educators. Designed to follow our presentation of the live play Dreaming Again at middle and high schools around the state, workshops are for teachers interested in deepening understanding and teaching around immigration to NH, and creating more culturally adaptive classrooms that are safe learning environments for all students. Please contact the Mariposa for details.
Putnam Foundation has generously supported transportation of students from schools throughout NH to the museum, making it possible for many who could not otherwise participate in our educational programs to come. In 2013, Putnam Foundation has also provided us with a grant to create and distribute curriculum resources and offer student-to-student get-togethers that increase understanding about immigration and the many cultures now represented in NH (follows the live play Dreaming Again).
NH State Council on the Arts
The Mariposa Museum has received a 2-year development grant from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. The funds will support a part-time professional who will assist the museum in reaching its development goals.
National Endowment for the Arts
The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is an independent agency of the United States federal government that offers support and funding for projects exhibiting artistic excellence. It was created by an act of the U.S. Congress in 1965 as an independent agency of the federal government. Its current Chairman is Broadway theatre producer Rocco Landesman. The NEA has its offices in the Old Post Office building, in Washington, D.C. It was awarded Tony Honors for Excellence in Theatre in 1995.
Goyette Memorial Fund
The fund was established in 1994 at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation through the estate of Hazel N. Goyette, a long-time resident of Peterborough. The purpose of the fund is to support projects intended to sustain and improve the quality of life in Peterborough.
