Who We Are
The Paterson Museum Foundation is pleased to announce its formation and its first Board of Trustees to guide it.
For over ninety years, the Paterson Museum, located in the center of Paterson's Historical district, has served the residents of Paterson as a community arts center and cultural institution dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of Paterson's rich history. We are excited to announce the formation of the Paterson Museum Foundation (The Foundation) during Paterson's 225th anniversary year. The Foundation will support the growth of the museum in conjunction with the revival of the Great Falls and Hinchliffe Stadium, promote the development of its exhibits, educational programs and special community events. The trustees: Sheryl Adamoff, Glenn Corbett, David R. Cubby, Esq., Giacomo "Jack" DeStefano, David Ferrari, Heather Garside, and Lawrence "Pat" Kramer. Each brings a unique perspective, background and knowledge base to the Board and has ties to the Paterson Museum and its greater community.
As its first initiative, the Foundation signed on to support the ongoing Paterson 225 Academic Symposium lecture series. Fundraising events are May 10 and 11, 2019 in conjunction with the 150th anniversary of the Golden Spike Ceremony. Visit the Events Page for more information. Questions about the foundation may be addressed to the Board by email or you can ask for Jack DeStefano at the Paterson Museum (973-321-1260) during normal business hours.
