Donations of money

Donate to further our mission and make history, today.

Your donation—whether it's your time, your money, or your things—helps us to continue preserving and teaching history every day. Volunteers literally keep the doors open: more than 240 volunteers contribute hundreds of hours each year to staff the reception desk and library, while others work with our full and part-time staff members on projects and community programs, such as the annual Evergreen Cemetery Walk. Object donations help to keep our collections diverse and reflective of our community; nearly every item on display has been donated by a member of the community just like you. Monetary donationsallow us to continue operating year after year, developing award-winning exhibits and programs enjoyed by visitors from around the world.   Monetary donations keep our admission price low for adults, and provide free entry for all students.
