The Cashin Fund supports students for field trips to the Canal.

Enterprise Associate

Gifts of $2,500 - $9,999 entitle the donor to membership as an Enterprise Associate, named to acknowledge both the spirit of enterprise that led to the Canal's construction, enlargement and preservation, and for the mighty 19th century textile mill that is now home to the Augusta Canal Discovery Center. Enterprise Associates receive all benefits of the Lock Master Canal Keeper as well as one complimentary rental of the Discovery Center for a private function.

The Henry H. Cumming Society

Gifts of $10,000 or more entitle the donor to membership in the Henry H. Cumming Society. Named in honor of the founder of the Augusta Canal, the Society's motto comes from Henry Cumming himself, "It is the duty and ought to be the pleasure of every citizen to do something for the public good." The Society will recognize its members in unique and customized ways that suit the preferences of the donor.


Honor a friend or loved one, or their memory, with a tax-deductible gift to the Augusta Canal National Heritage Area, Inc. Acknowledgment will be sent to both the donor and the honoree as appropriate.

Corporate Gifts

Businesses and organizations may support the canal both with cash and in-kind gifts. A customized acknowledgement will be provided based on the needs and desires of the donor. Corporate donors are recognized on our website.
