Tax returns and financial statements are on file for public viewing.  Call 330-833-1068 for an appointment.

Restoration projects are on-going, roof repairs are an annual expense and the new boiler has produced more heat, but pushed the old pipes beyond their limits.  The estimate for the list of pending repairs and maintenance exceeds $750,000.  Please consider making a donation or joining the Foundation to help in the preservation of this beautiful, historic Massillon treasure.  Your financial support is greatly appreciated.  Click on Membership to make a donation or become a member.

The Massillon Heritage Foundation  was formed in 1975 and is governed by a board of trustees.  It's mission is to receive and administer funds for the purpose of acquiring, restoring, preserving and maintaining properties of historical significance to Massillon and the surrounding area for use in scientific, educational and charitable purposes.  Its main focus is the preservation of Five Oaks.  Five Oaks was deeded to the Foundation from the Massillon Woman's Club when preservation projects and expenses became too burdensome. As a charitable, non-profit organization, the Foundation is eligible for local, state and federal grants.  Other funding, some of which is tax-deductible, comes from memberships, special events, local capital campaigns and tourism.
