Contributions and donations are very important to the future well being of the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum. There are many ways for you to donate to ensure that the educational mission continues. We depend on donors for new items to both the museum collection and the library’s archival collection.  All of our artifacts come from donors as we do not maintain an acquisitions fund.

Donations can be mailed to:
