How much to donate to ceremony site?

Hey all, 

New here, just got engaged in June :) 

My fiance and I are having a very small, intimate wedding (Maybe 10 or so guests). Iv fallen in love with an old historical mansion for the site for our wedding ceremony. They want me to fill out a form to be approved, and instead of stating a rental price they ask how much you would be willing to donate to rent. 

How much should I offer? This mansion is gorgeous, old Victorian style, built in the 1840's and considered a landmark but now a private art school. I want to rent the back part of the property, which would include a parking lot, and possibly use of one of the rooms inside to prepare. They also charge $50 an hour for a staff member to be on site of the property. I would just need it for the ceremony, reception is being held elsewhere. 

Thoughts? I dont want to go too low or too high...or I was wondering if I could somehow word I would like to discuss it.

Thank you!
