Help your favorite historic site’s programs weather the economic crisis, and help us support scholarship at the same time. Scholarship on art and art history has been part of our mission since The Couse Foundation’s inception almost two decades ago, and we’ve been publishing books since 2012.

Choose a contribution level and see what you’ll receive:

All these books would be perfect additions to your art library or gifts for discerning aficionados. And by sending in your contribution you’ll be helping us make up the huge shortfall caused by our closure and cancellation of fundraising events!

Don’t forget that for those of you who don’t normally itemize your federal taxes, for 2020 you can take advantage of a $300 special deduction for charitable contributions. It’s specifically to encourage donations to nonprofits like us! For all filers, as always your deduction amount won’t include the retail value of the promotional items you receive. And we’re happy to work with you to ensure you get the books you really want no matter the package you choose!
