The Oakland County Pioneer and Historical Society is an independent, non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to preserving Oakland County's heritage and to maintaining Pine Grove as a registered national and state historic site. We are not supported by tax dollars or any municipality, but instead rely upon program fees, membership dues, grants, and support from businesses and citizens to carry out our mission. We are a 501(c)3 organization and as such, gifts are tax deductible in accordance with applicable law.

When making your gift, please include a note to let us know the areas you are supporting. If you do not see a way to designate your choice on the donation screens, please send us a quick email at Undesignated gifts will be gratefully applied to our General Operating Budget or to the area of greatest need. Thank you so much for your support!

C. Endowment: Endowment gifts are invested and the income earned on investments supports the Society. The Principal amount is not spent, but the earnings support the Society in perpetuity. This is a wonderful way to leave a lasting gift for history!

All monetary donations are acknowledged for income tax purposes, and are greatly appreciated. Donations may be made securely on-line via the "Donate" button below, or by mail, checks payable to OCPHS.

MATERIAL OR ARTIFACTS: We will gladly consider donations of historical material pertaining to Oakland County's people, places, and events. This could include artifacts as well as written documents, photographs, and books. However, some items may already be included in our collections, may be difficult to properly store or display, or may not be deemed relevant to our collections needs. We ask that potential donors contact us to arrange a consultation with a member of our accessions committee prior to bringing items to Pine Grove. Accepted donations will be acknowledged for tax purposes, although OCPHS does not designate a monetary value. If we cannot accept an item, we often can recommend an alternative organization or use, making the consultation worthwhile to both OCPHS and the donor.
