Donations represent the largest source of income for Willard House and Willard Archives. While grants help fund important museum projects, they are generally not available for normal operational expenses, staff salaries, or discretionary items.

Restoring stained glass in the dining room

Donations allowed FWHA to restore the stained glass in the dining room.

Your donations ensure that we are able to continue offering tours, programs and research services on a regular basis. In addition, funding for maintenance and restoration of Willard House, managing the Library and Archives, and caring for all the collections, is a constant concern and your donations support that work.

Donations can be given on a one-time basis or can be made as a pledge with payments scheduled over time. In the donation form on our site, you can make your gift as unrestricted funding or you may choose a specific use.

In addition, donating financial securities such as shares of stocks is also a way people provide gifts. Planned giving as part of one’s personal legacy is yet another avenue. If you would like to consider one of these alternatives, please contact
