Support Historic Yellow Springs

Your investment in Historic Yellow Springs sustains our historic village and the vibrant programs offered in the arts, history and nature. There are many ways to become involved and make a tax-deductible donation. Find the one that is right for you!


Anyone that has visited Historic Yellow Springs knows what a special place it is. As a historic village devoted to arts, history and nature, we serve nearly 22,000 people who visit us each year. They learn about our history, take art classes, attend summer camp and enjoy events in the beautiful and natural environment of our 142 acres of open space. What better investment in the future than that?

Without support from the public, Historic Yellow Springs could not exist. We depend on the generosity of individuals, families, businesses, and foundations to carry out all of our work. Please join the growing number of people who believe in our mission of providing education in arts, history, and nature. Your gift ensures that innovative educational programs, exhibitions, and events are available to our community at this remarkable historic site.
