Support Our Work

Using Historic Preservation with Architectural Integrity to provide space for Cultural and Community Events

 How can you help?

We are grateful for the community’s support, generosity, and spirit of volunteerism, and we are encouraged to continue this project at a vigorous pace.  Donated labor and materials have helped bring about the success that you see today, but significant money is still required to complete a project of this magnitude. Are you interested in helping support the Brown House restoration?

  • Make a Donation
  • Join our Events Team.              Create, organize, and implement Events to raise money for our cause.
  • Rent the Brown House for an Event
  • Donate construction materials -even leftovers from your projects
  • Donate In-Kind Gifts
    • Large plastic topped tables 60″ or 72″ with folding legs
    • Padded & sturdy folding chairs
    • Computer  for educational purposes
    • A Volunteer Electrician to install a sub-panel in our outbuilding
    • A Volunteer Plumber to convert our laundry hookup to a laundry sink
  • Purchase fundraising materials
  •  Get a Brown House Membership
