Support the Lakewood Historical Society with your secure online contribution.

General contributions are applied to the society's general operating funds and support our mission based programming and care of our three historic properties and collections.

The Margaret Manor Butler Endowment Fund is a permanent endowment fund held at the Cleveland Foundation. The investment return from pooling these funds with other non-profit endowments allows for an annual draw off the interest into perpetuity.

The Preservation Fund of the Lakewood Historical Society is used to financially assist the preservation or rehabilitation of historically or architecturally significant buildings or structures (including fixtures) in the City of Lakewood.

"A Home of Our Own" Capital Campaign supports the Haber Family Center for History building operations. The endowment created through this campaign will serve to support the building long into the future and maintain the collection storage and public use library facilities.

Volunteers are essential to the activities of the Lakewood Historical Society. From fundraising to service on the Board of Trustees, and from administrative tasks to collections work, there is a place to explore your interests.
