Making a Donation - you can make a gift to benefit the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park directly to the National Park Service. Your gifts will be use only for the benefit of our park and you may identify the program and/or project for which your gift is intended. No administrative cost is deducted therefore 100% of your gift will be used for the purpose you identify. Your check will be deposited in a government account and the full amount will be spent as you intended. Most parks have separate donations accounts for park-specific projects and programs for which you may earmark your gift.
