The House of the Seven Gables is pleased to support local charities, nonprofits, and other organizations. We receive a high volume of donation requests and we try to accommodate as many as possible. Any donated goods are to be used in auctions, raffles, etc.

Our donation priorities include:

  • Local organizations (Salem, MA and Essex County)
  • Organizations or causes in line with The Gables’ mission (i.e. education, preservation, immigration, historic sites, services to youth and community)

*The Gables’ standard donation for fulfilled requests is four single-use admission passes that can be used to visit our National Historic Landmark District. The one-time-use passes each admit one guest and include a mansion tour. These passes have no expiration and are valid all year-round, with the exception of the month of October.

Please complete the following form to submit your donation request.


The House of the Seven Gables Settlement Association was founded in 1910 by Caroline Emmerton. She restored the Turner-Ingersoll Mansion, opened it as a museum, and used proceeds from admission to support important social work. Today, the organization continues her legacy by preserving our National Historic Landmark District and leveraging its power as an icon of American culture to support educational programs in our local community.
