Celebrate Giving Tuesday with HOF

Historic Odessa Foundation Giving Tuesday

You probably know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but what about Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for you to give back to your community during this holiday season. This year the Historic Odessa Foundation has three ways you can help preserve and promote the homes, grounds, collections and historic legacy of Odessa, Delaware.

Coming Together to Give Back

Membership brings complimentary guided tour, guest passes, discounts, and invitations. 

Become a Member — your gift affords you not only access to the Historic Houses and surrounding gardens, but also helps to preserve, enhance, and share Odessa with visitors, scholars, and students all year long.
