Help Make a Difference: Give to Meadow Brook

The engagement of friends and supporters becomes critical to our use of authentic three-dimensional history – things we can touch and feel – as a foundation for educating our citizens, children and grandchildren about what made America great. We invite you to join us as a steward of this incredible treasure as we engage in activity to maintain and enrich its value before passing its care on to those who follow behind us.

Give to Meadow Brook

Invest in Our Heritage

By supporting a local treasure and National Historic Landmark with annual gifts, you can help preserve an important community asset. Meadow Brook Hall is an independent auxiliary of Oakland University and is totally self-funding.

While membership has its privileges, the true reward is in knowing you are directly involved in helping to maintain and enrich The Hall’s significance for future generations.

8_PegassusDonations we have received over the past year have allowed us to:

  • Complete renovations to The Hall’s exterior lighting
  • Replace the boiler and upgrade the system controls
  • Upgrade the HVAC system for utility efficiency
  • Begin timber restoration on The Hall and outbuildings
  • Restore the Breakfast Room and Sun Porch through the Adopt-an-Artifact program

Friends are the backbone of support for Meadow Brook Hall’s preservation and interpretation of the buildings, grounds and social history of one of America’s great estates. The status and success The Hall has enjoyed are the direct result of the commitment shared by our donors.

We hope to welcome you to the family of supporters of Meadow Brook Hall.
