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 donations allow 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.
