Donors make Willowbank Happen

Willowbank is evolving and growing for a more sustainable future.

Support our Students

Your donations to Willowbank support our aim of making education accessible to the best and brightest in heritage conservation, regardless of their financial position.

Entrance scholarships have enabled three years of students to attend Willowbank, and they will go on, as graduates, to have a lasting impact on the conservation world.

Financial Aid Goal

of $75,000

There is power to the site. Seeing layers of history — having Willowbank itself as a case study—creates a deep connection to what students are learning.

Donate to Apple Barn project

Appel Barn

Fundraising Goal $75,000

The project will benefit Willowbank by increasing our institutional capacity to deliver the curriculum as well as preserving this heritage building. The goal of this project is to modify the east wing into a multi-purpose classroom and workshop space. In 2021 we are moving functions of our lower campus to our upper campus.

This adaptive reuse project will make this section of the building into a hands-on learning space for stained glass, plaster and monument conservation as well as stone carving. The exterior of the barn will also be painted, which will conserve and maintain its original wood siding.

General donations

We are a not-for-profit, independent institution that believes that our heritage matters and how we interpret, build and conserve our places matter too!

Willowbank brings together a School and a National Historic site into one place where students are immersed in cutting edge experiential learning that is based on traditional techniques and knowledge.

We need supporters who share our vision to help support our development as an institution and as a leader in the fields of heritage conservation and cultural landscape theory.
