Make a Donation

Our mission is to promote awareness and appreciation of the life and works of Mark Twain and to demonstrate the relevance of his stories and ideas to citizens of the world. With your donation, you can help keep Twain's legacy alive for future generations to come.

Types of Gifts

General Operating Support

Unrestricted Gifts are the most versatile for the Mark Twain Home Foundation. This allows the funds to go wherever needed at the moment. 

Give to the Endowment

The endowment provides the organization with a reliable source of funding in the future. As the endowment grows, it generates more funding that can be devoted to new exhibits, dedicated staffing positions, or covering operational losses when the river floods or a pandemic reduces attendance.

“Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life."

– Notebook, 1898
