Your Investment Inspires Great Things
Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill is Kentucky’s largest National Historic Landmark. For over sixty years, we have been able to protect the historic buildings and natural landscape entrusted to our care because of your support and financial investment.
You have also helped us seek new audiences and engage them with the Shaker story. Contributions from donors like you have funded daily programs, new exhibits and signature events. Together we have ensured the Shaker legacy remains for future generations to discover.
But there is more to do, and we need your help. Because SVPH receives no state or federal funding, we rely on the generosity of individual donors. When you make a gift, you’re funding the efforts of our master craftsmen, educators, naturalists and so much more! You can invest in SVPH’s future by clicking the button below.
Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent the law allows. A gift of any size will have an immediate impact. Federal ID #61-0592561.
The Shaker Society
The Shaker Society Annual Fund is one of the most important components of our fundraising program. Contributions to the Annual Fund directly support daily work.
Join the Shaker Society with a gift of $5 or more.
