Make a Donation

With your help, we bring history to life through innovative, hands-on programs and experiences.

The John Wornall House and the Alexander Majors House are two of Kansas City’s most important historic landmarks, and we strive to preserve and protect them while bringing history alive in a way that is relevant and fresh to modern audiences.

  • Teachers come to us when they need flexible field trips that integrate seamlessly into their lesson plans.
  • Visitors from the Kansas City area, as well as across the country and the world, take tours of the Houses to gain a greater appreciation of Missouri/Kansas history.
  • We partner with organizations like KCPT and the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival to reach new audiences and share our story.
  • Community members gather at our lectures, dinners, and cocktail parties to network and learn with others that share their love of Kansas City and its diverse history.

Or Make a Monthly Donation!

Monthly donations provide critical support for Wornall/Majors that we know we can rely on!

Your monthly donation allows us to know how much donation revenue we can count on, and when we can count on it. This allows us to spend more time focusing on reaching the community and providing free or low cost public programs for youth and adults. And you can spread out your charitable giving into smaller, easier-to-pay amounts!

How It Works

Simply click on the “Donate” button below, choose your amount to give monthly, and make sure that you select the “donate monthly” option before entering your details. It’s that simple!

There’s no tricky cancellation policies – you can manage your giving through your monthly giving receipt, or call us at any time if you’d like to cancel or change your donation amount.
