Our Organization

Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum is the oldest non-profit educational, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization on Cape Cod.



The Cape Cod Pilgrim Memorial Association (the “Association”) is a private non-profit, educational organization whose mission is to maintain the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum buildings and land (the “PMPM”) to accommodate its libraries and collections. The Association’s mission is also to commemorate the history of the Mayflower Pilgrims, culminating in their arrival and stay in Provincetown Harbor and the signing of the Mayflower Compact.

The Association’s mission further includes the collection, preservation, research, exhibition and publication of archival materials on all aspects of Provincetown history, including the contributions of the Wampanoag and other indigenous peoples whose presence in the region predates the arrival of the Mayflower, the rise of the whaling industry, the advent of the Portuguese fishing community, and the evolution of Provincetown as a center of tolerance, art, and theater in the 20th Century, including the important role of the LGBT community in that evolution.

The Association shall be operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as from time to time amended, and within the meaning of Massachusetts General Law, Ch. 180 sec 4, as amended.

Ratified by the membership of the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum on 01 December 2018.
