Volunteers present our world-class museums and their historic neighborhoods to an international audience and help with special events and education programs. By donating at least four hours per month to the Preservation Trust's programs, volunteers share their knowledge and appreciation for architecture, design and the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. Our training program equips you to serve in a variety of volunteer positions. Continuing education opportunities engage volunteers and deepen their knowledge of history, art and architecture.
Join a community of like-minded individuals who cultivate lasting friendships, enjoy earned memberships, social gatherings, group excursions, access to an active online community, and shopping discounts.
To learn more about a rewarding volunteering experience, please complete the I want to volunteer form and a member of our staff will be in touch. We invite you to join us for one of our orientation sessions.
