Donations represent the largest source of income for Willard House. 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 and programs on a regular basis.  In addition, restoration and conservation of Willard House, the Library and Archives, and its collections is a constant concern in order to provide our visitors with the best possible experience and to save the many great and irreplaceable historical artifacts.

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 such as for a restoration project or to build our endowment fund.

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
