Mount Washington Cog Railway Charitable Donations

It is the goal of the Mount Washington Cog Railway to support the local community by providing charitable contributions within the confines of responsible business practices. As you might imagine, we are very frequently asked to support charitable purposes of all types. Annually, we review our giving plan and allocate according to predetermined criteria. These criteria include a heavily weighed emphasis on local education and public health organizations.

Due to the large volumes of donation requests each year we have created the guidelines listed below. Every fundraiser is important, but because of demand we can only honor requests that meet the following criteria.


  • Requests must be made at least 30 days prior to the event
  • Requests must be made to the donation email address, (see below)
  • Requesting organization and auction must reside locally within a 75-mile radius
