Frequently Asked Questions About Donations & Tours
In this time of across-the-board cutbacks at Harvard, are University funds being used in the Restoration?
No. Other than normal day-to-day items such as heat, lighting and security provided to Westmorly Hall in general, the University does not provide on-going financial support to the project. The FDR Suite Restoration Project, as well as its scholarship efforts, is entirely funded through donations made to the FDR Suite Foundation, Inc. The Foundation is an all-volunteer, alumni driven private 501(c)3 public charity.
May I designate funds solely for the endowment program?
Yes. Please indicate your preferance when giving.
Are my contributions tax deductible?
Yes: The FDR Suite Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 US public charity. Your contributions are deductible in the United States to the extent allowed by law.
Once completed, what will the Suite be used for?
The Suite will have a two-fold purpose. Its primary function will be as a memorial to FDR, as well as a museum of Harvard student life in 1900. In addition, the Suite will provide special overnight guest accommodations for the House.
May I tour the Suite if I am visiting Harvard?
Yes, as a member of the Restoration, or as a Harvard affiliate, you may make arrangements for a private tour of the Suite, which also includes the architectural highlights of Adams House. Tours are gratis for Restoration members at the Supporter level and above; current students, and faculty members; for non-members a $150 donation to the Foundation is requested, but not required.
