Your Support Makes a Difference

Each year, we welcome visitors from all across the country to our magnificent estate and gardens. While here guests have the opportunity to tour the estate and learn about R.S. McLaughlin and his impact on our community and country.

Your support will help us continue our important work to protect, preserve, and conserve. Preserving the structures and artifacts is a difficult, meticulous, and expensive undertaking, which is why we are grateful for any and all support. The Parkwood Foundation is a charitable organization and relies on generous donations from individuals and corporate partners.

Ways to Give

There are many ways you can help: gifts from individuals, corporations, foundations, and organizations all enable us to inspire and promote an appreciation of the value of preservation and to preserve the home and legacy of R.S. McLaughlin for generations to come.

Consider one of the following ways to support Parkwood National Historic Site.

Monthly donations are an easy way to have a large impact on our conservation and preservation efforts.  All donations will receive one tax receipt at the end of the year and will receive our Parkwood Newsletter.

Parkwood has officially kicked off our Pathway to Preservation Campaign, which offers the opportunity to individuals, groups, clubs and businesses to help support our important heritage conservation at Parkwood. Brick sales are ongoing and for all the options on brick sizes please download our Pathway to Preservation Form. The path will be located outside of the Gardener’s Lodge and it is a wonderful way to pay tribute to someone, or to leave your connection to Parkwood and its’ future. The cost of the bricks are $50 for a 4”x 8” brick, $100 for the 8” x 8” brick and $200 for the 12” x 12” brick.19751 (on which you can have your logo engraved)
