Supporting the Cook-Rutledge Mansion

The Cook-Rutledge Mansion does not receive any government funding -- no tax dollars for its maintenance -- and relies on monetary gifts from the generosity of businesses and private individuals. 


We invite you to become a patron, friend, or docent of the Mansion. Monetary donations allow us to preserve this historical, educational, and beautiful landmark for current and future generations. Contact us for information on individual, family, or business memberships.

Friends of the Mansion help with fundraisers and other events. Docents are volunteers trained to provide guided tours of the historic building. New volunteers are always welcome at the Mansion.

The Board of Directors manage day-to-day operations of the Mansion. Its mission is to restore and maintain the Mansion and to educate the public about its history. Board members are non-paid volunteers.

The Cook-Rutledge Mansion is an IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Tax deductible donations can be made directly to the Mansion or the Cook-Rutledge Mansion Fund of the Community Foundation of Chippewa County.
