President Lincoln’s Cottage, a private, nonprofit organization, provides reduced-fee facility use to nonprofit organizations that share, promote, or exemplify similar and/or supporting missions. We started this program as another way to advance our own mission and vision with our non-profit partners. By providing partner nonprofits with quality, meaningful space for meetings and events, we share the opportunity to draw inspiration from this authentic place and the remarkable stories of what Lincoln accomplished here as they advance their missions in service to their community. A hallmark of the program is that all applicants have an existing relationship with President Lincoln’s Cottage or agree to ways of partnering so that the relationship grows in mutual benefit.
