Thank you for your philanthropic investment in the DACOR Bacon House Foundation. Please consider a recurring gift so that contribution can have a greater impact, especially if you give monthly and would like to increase the size of your overall gift allowing us a continuous stream over the course of the year.

Your donation will be utilized in some of the following ways for our beloved House:

PRESERVATION

Critical because of the responsibility we have to protect the many historical aspects of the House:

  • The treasured spaces
  • The unique architectural features
  • The valuable art work and invaluable memorabilia

MODERNIZATION

Critical because of the need to keep the House up-to-date for the benefit of our members and guests:

  • Installation of new audio and visual systems to ensure functionality of the event space
  • Addition of energy conservation features that can save money and the environment
  • Replacement of aging operating systems, such as pipes and wires, that can cause hazards to the House

MAINTENANCE

Critical because of the many, sometimes mundane, aspects of keeping up a 200 year-old House which are actually critical to its preservation. Examples include:

  • Carpentry work that fixes small problems before they become big
  • Masonry work that protects our walls from deterioration
  • Repair and replacement of furnishings to maintain the House's elegance.

YOUR CONTRIBUTION MATTERS! Every dollar you donate to the DACOR Bacon House Foundation is an investment in our "home away from home" and will keep our beloved House in the best condition for our current members and those who will enjoy the House in the future. ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
