Eleanor challenged Fitchburg to raise $10,000 to open the Fitchburg Art Center, which became the Fitchburg Art Museum in 1951.  In that spirit, we hope you will celebrate her love of art and Fitchburg with a gift to the Museum that grew from her imagination.  There are a few ways to contribute, at whatever level you can:
