How You Can Help
There are many ways you can make a difference at Parkwood. Donations 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.
Here are just a few options you can consider.
Your monthly donation can have an impact on our conservation and preservation efforts because we can plan and stay ahead of any issues as they arise. You will receive one tax receipt at the end of the year and will receive our updates on the difference your donation is making.
We are super excited to announce that we have officially kicked off our Pathway to Preservation Campaign. You, as an individual, or group can make a meaningful impact on the conservation at Parkwood. Here’s how it works. You can help build the pretty new path by buying one of the individual bricks from which it will be comprised. Located outside of the charming Gardener’s Lodge, the path is a wonderful way to pay tribute to a loved one or to make your own lasting connection with Parkwood. For brick size options please download our Pathway to Preservation Form.
Brick costs are as follows: $50 for a 4”x 8”brick, $100 for the 8” x 8” brick and $200 for the 12” x 12” brick, which can feature
your engraved company logo.
Sponsorship is an exceptional way to align your products and services with Parkwood’s elegant sophistication and rich history. Corporate support will maximize your organization’s charitable giving and demonstrate your leadership position in your community – your customers and employees will love you for it!
Your sponsorship can support Parkwood on an annual basis or by event – the world is your oyster here; we can create a program that works best for you. Whether your company is interested in a significant gift contribution, encouraging customers to donate through a cause-related marketing campaign, or involving your employees in charitable giving, we can create the right corporate support program for your organization.
