How Your Gift Helps The Library & Museums

Your gifts to the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums help support the preservation of the Hayes Home, library and museum and the beautiful grounds. Donations allow HPLM to continue the wide variety of educational programs held here each year including lectures, concerts, tours for school children, and continuing education for history teachers. Since the early 20th century, the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums has been a pioneer in the historic preservation of the life and times of our nation's highest elected officials. Your support allows us to continue our high standards of preservation and to continue to be is the nation's premier library for Hayes scholars, The Gilded Age, and Ohio genealogy.
