Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio Library

Please help us shine a light on the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust in Chicago and Oak Park.

To ensure the health and safety of our guests, staff, and volunteers, tours at all Frank Lloyd Wright Trust sites are temporarily suspended until further notice.

The current COVID-19 national health crisis has placed many small businesses and non-profits in a precarious position that threatens their survival. The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust is among the organizations particularly hard hit. Each year during cold weather months, the Trust relies upon baseline resources. With spring and summer tour revenue, the capacity to fulfill our mission is energized and strengthened. The closure of our sites came at a time when tour revenue was at its lowest annual level.

With very limited capacity to meet payrolls and essential property expenses now and in the months ahead, we are working to raise the immediate funds needed to sustain us through this crisis. We are launching a campaign to raise $500,000. We need your support now more than ever before.

To everyone who supports the work of the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust and lights our way to a brighter future, we extend our heartfelt gratitude and look forwarrd to welcoming you back to our historic sites when we reopen.

Please consider helping the Trust continue its mission by making a donation in any amount, purchasing a membership with benefits at every level, or buying a ShopWright gift card for a friend or family member. Learn more about the IRS changes to charitable giving for 2020.

You can make all the difference in protecting the cultural resources of your community and ensuring its vitality in the years ahead. Thank you.


If you are considering a gift from a Charitable Fund, please request your advisor to remit the gift via an Automatic Clearing House (ACH) transfer. Contact Tom Gull, Director of Development for more information.
