$2,000 Goal

This holiday season, spend your time making a difference in the artistic and cultural landscape of our city by donating to our Love This House campaign. When you take 20.2 seconds to donate, it helps the Taft historic house live on for another 200 years for generations to enjoy. A gift of just $20.20 to the Love This House campaign will help preserve the Historic House. 

Together, we will preserve the Baum-Longworth-Sinton-Taft House for future generations. You are invited to join this preservation campaign.

Why Give Today?

  • Giving to the Love This House Campaign ensures preservation of the historic house for future generations.
  • In 2019 the Taft touched the lives of over 69,000 visitors through exhibitions, programs, workshops, and other activities in the Greater Cincinnati region.
  • The Taft Museum of Art’s impact reaches far beyond Cincinnati. In 2019 visitors traveled from 48 states and 53 foreign countries.
  • A gift to Love This House is a meaningful way to make a significant and lasting contribution to the Taft Museum of Art and our city.

Help Us Secure A Matching Grant

The Taft Museum of Art has been awarded the competitive Infrastructure and Capacity Building Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities in the maximum amount of $750,000. To receive the grant, the Taft must raise $3 million to secure the 4:1 match.

Funds raised will directly support the Taft's Love This House campaign, a fundraising initiative seeking to raise $12.7MM to support the Taft's Bicentennial Infrastructure Project, critically needed to preserve and reconstruct the museum's 200-year-old historic house—the Taft's largest work of art and prized National Historic Landmark. 

Join our Love This House campaign today to help fund the Bicentennial Infrastructure Project. 

Our Story 

We are the caring stewards of this 200-year-old former home. Meaningful work is needed to ensure future generations will experience its grandeur. The 2004 renovation was vital to the interior of the Museum; however, the exterior is in much need of repair. Our “Love This House Campaign” will raise the critical funding needed to ensure the future stability of our 200-year-old historic house— our largest work of art and prized National Historic Landmark.

Did You Know?   The Taft Museum of Art has historic landmark status for the historic structure and the murals by Robert S. Duncanson. The Duncanson murals, some of our most important works, are painted directly onto the 200-year-old plaster of the historic home’s foyer. Because the murals cannot be moved, the care of the murals is of paramount concern. We will maintain a safe environment for the murals by controlling temperature and humidity, monitoring for vibration, and regularly examining the murals’ condition.
