Why does local history matter in a global, STEM-focused world? The humanities are the cornerstone of our society, providing essential perspectives on the human experience, teaching us how to think critically, and connecting us to our shared past. Your contributions have allowed us to preserve invaluable objects, partner with community members on unique exhibitions, and revive educational programs for a transformed classroom. These initiatives have educated and entertained children and adults alike, promoting mutual understanding and appreciation of Shaker Heights’ stories.

The support of our community has made all of this possible, and we are immensely grateful. However, to sustain and expand our efforts, we need your help. Whether you donate $25 (the cost to replace one gallery light) or $500 (the cost for AppleFest tables and chairs), your gift has a direct, positive impact on our programs, exhibitions, and preservation efforts. As we continue to recover from the challenges posed by the pandemic, your support will empower us to reach even more people, encouraging them to explore the rich history of Shaker Heights and fostering a deeper sense of community pride in Northeast Ohio.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Shaker Historical Society today. By supporting the museum, you become a partner in preserving the heritage of our community and providing opportunities to learn from those who came before us. Together, we can continue to inspire curiosity, bridge divides, and celebrate the diverse tapestry of Shaker Heights.
