Become a Partner in Preserving Our Past for the Future

As the nation’s first presidential library, the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center has made its historic, rare, and significant Manuscript Collections available to researchers for more than ninety years. Scholars, students, historians, educators, genealogists and journalists from throughout the United States and beyond travel to the Hayes Presidential Center each year to use its collections. Their work – whether a book, documentary, article, thesis, dissertation, or classroom lesson plan - provide all of us with a better understanding of America’s past and ourselves.

Continue the Tradition of Excellence

In the face of rising costs, donors and their gifts have played an increasingly important role in helping the Hayes Presidential Center purchase original documents, diaries, letters, and records.

A donation to the Hayes Presidential Center Manuscripts Fund is much more than a financial contribution; it is an opportunity to become a partner in preserving the past for the future. Join the Hayes Center in its effort to continue the tradition of excellence by providing the highest quality research materials.

100% of every contribution goes directly to the purchase of important manuscripts that will be used intensively by researchers now and in the decades ahead.


Through their contributions to the Hayes Presidential Center Manuscripts Fund, these thoughtful donors have made possible the purchase of important collections that will be used by thousands of researchers who visit the Hayes Presidential Center each year.
