When you make a donation to President Lincoln’s Cottage, an independent 501(c)(3) public charity, you enable us to preserve “the Cradle of the Emancipation Proclamation” and provide transformative experiences for thousands of visitors each year. Our Strategic Plan for 2018-2022 serves as a guide to our Board, staff, and supporters so we can best steward the future of this brave place together. For example, one highlight of our Strategic Plan is Phase 1 of a groundbreaking study on how the visitor experience at President Lincoln’s Cottage is influenced by the spaces Lincoln himself inhabited.
President Lincoln’s Cottage is a private nonprofit operation and the only National Monument in the country that does not receive federal operating support, making your gift essential to our ability to steward this place and make it accessible to all.
