Dear Friends,

In recent years, outstanding benchmarks have been reached by the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum with your support. We have won a national award, brought to completion important restoration projects, and have been recognized as a distinctive and engaging educational and cultural resource.

Keeping the doors open at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum is a challenging but exciting endeavor; just envision the thousands of students that visit the Mansion every year and are inspired to learn or the memorable impact that this historic building can have on new citizens following a Naturalization Ceremony.

Whether it is an educational program or a cherished community event, this institution continues to bring people together and nurture the relationship between this beloved National Historic Landmark and the diverse populations it serves.

You are very important to us and without your help, the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum cannot continue to enrich communities with history, arts, and culture and serve residents, students, scholars, and tourists, who visit from our local communities and from all around the globe.

The recent state budget cuts will make your donation all the more significant and vital today and in the future. Every gift is impactful and will help us fulfill the important mission of keeping this cultural and artistic legacy vibrant and meaningful for generations to come.

We thank you in advance for your generosity and look forward to your support.
