Donations

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.

Visitors to the park can give direct cash or check gifts through our donation boxes. Unlike entrance fees, 100% of donated funds stay in this park. Donation boxes are located at the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace NHP Visitor Center and in the Birthplace Memorial Building. Historic objects, manuscripts, books and other related items that have a direct relationship to Abraham Lincoln may be donated to the park's museum collection, where they are preserved for future generations to enjoy and learn. Contact the park to discuss anything you are considering donating to the park's collection.
