Help us GROW OUR IMPACT by giving to the Pequot Museum

Our Meesumôk Neetôp initiative promotes community-building through a variety of services and support. We do this by acquiring funding to develop and enhance various projects designed to ensure the sustainability of our Museum’s public programs and mission.


The Meesumôk Neetôp initiative envisions the realization of interdependence through bringing communities together in the spirit of helping and learning from one another.

Giving Friend Support

Community support and donations are a powerful commitment that supports our efforts to share the Pequot Story and its significance in America’s history with the world. As an ongoing Meesumôk Neetôp, your contributions along with our community partner fund-raising efforts will support the Mashantucket Pequot Museum to be able to continue to bring hidden histories to light, and through educational and outreach programs reach thousands of students and visitors from our own local communities, as well as from around the world.

Your support will establish the MPMRC as the foremost Cultural Learning Center of Northeastern Woodland history, traditions and culture.

Who Will Benefit

  • Our Tribal family and Friends
  • Aboriginal Communities & Cultural Centers across Indian Country
  • Educators
  • Early Childhood & K-12 students
