The Friends of Glanmore support the mandate of Glanmore National Historic Site: to preserve and present to the public the heritage character of the site and its contents.
An incorporated group of volunteers, the Friends assist with reception, education programs, special events, guiding, research and other museum functions. They are a registered charity and provide financial support to the museum through a variety of fundraising endeavours.
The Friends of Glanmore hold a monthly business meeting, from September to June, featuring a guest speaker on topics of interest.
In 2003, the Friends of Glanmore published a richly illustrated book detailing Glanmore’s history and collections. Funds raised through the sale of this book are used to support Friends of Glanmore projects.
