Make a Donation

Thank you for making a contribution to the Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Historical Society. Your gift will help sustain the museum's daily operations and uphold our commitment to delivering engaging exhibitions and public programs; collecting and preserving local heritage and culture; and supporting historical research.

Your contribution is important and necessary to preserve and learn from the memories of people, places and events - past and present - that impact our future.

How to contribute:

To donate online, please use the Donate button below.


To make a donation by check, please print and return a donation form.

Your gift may be made in honor of or in memory of a loved one and we will be happy to notify the person you designate about your gift. Near the end of the payment process, you will have an opportunity to note in whose memory or honor the donation is being made and the name and address of the person you would like us to notify.


Donations of any size help keep our history relevant and preserve it for years to come. Donations may be made in the form of a cash gift, a bequest, or a gift of stock or real property. Because the Historical Society is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, your donation is tax-deductible.

We are indebted to our donors who have included the Historical Society in their planned giving through wills and trusts, insurance policies, and annuities. If you would like to leave a restricted gift or would like to discuss other gift planning ideas, such as a gift of stock, please contact Director of Development Lisa Frey or call 847.234.5253.
