Support the Falmouth Forum
Endowment Drive

For the last 30 years, the Falmouth Forum, presented by the Friends of the MBL, has brought free cultural enrichment to our Cape Cod neighbors. In the wake of COVID-19, we're working on new ways to share intellectually stimulating programming with our local community and beyond!
