November 28th is #GivingTuesday, a national movement founded in 2012 to redefine the giving spirit during the holiday season, and to help non-profits like ours raise greatly needed funds.  This year The Fairbanks Family in America is launching our first #GivingTuesday campaign, and we hope you will help us by making a donation.

Are you looking for a special gift that will help preserve your family homestead AND honor a loved one?   You can make an honorary gift to the FFA and we will send the recipient a Fairbanks House Season’s Greetings card with notification of your gift in his/her honor,  and a Fairbanks House tasseled book mark to you both as our gift.

To give, please visit our donation page.

Fairbanks Garden Club

This local club of fifty enthusiastic gardeners has designed and nurtured the gardens surrounding the Fairbanks House for many years.

Each year their crews come out in force for Spring and Fall cleanups, new plantings, pruning, feeding, and watering to make sure these beautiful blooms are at their best.

The Club also sponsors an annual Spring Plant Sale in May which draws crowds of gardeners, horticulturists, and anyone who loves green!
