There are many ways to donate to your favorite park. Regardless of what form it takes, your donation is greatly appreciated!
Park visitors can give direct cash or check gifts through our donation box. Unlike entrance fees, 100% of your donated funds are used to support programs within the park. Our donation box is located in the Plains High School Visitor Center/Museum.
Historic objects and other items that have a direct relationship to President or Mrs. Carter or the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site, may be donated to the park's museum collection. these items will be preserved for future generation to enjoy and used for learning purposes. Contact Kate Funk, Museum Curator, to discuss anything that you may be considering on donating to the park.
Donations do not have to be of money or historic objects, your time is also a valuable asset. The park can use your assistance in all areas of operations. Depending on your skills and interests and the needs of the park, we will match you to the best job available. Volunteer your time by contacting Steve Theus, Volunteer Coordinator. Become a VIP!!!!

Jimmy Carter returned to Plains, Georgia, in 1953 following his father's death to manage the family's agribusiness. That year he earned less than $200. His limited income qualified him to move into an apartment in the town's housing project for low income families.
