Thank you for considering a gift to the North Carolina Museum of History Foundation! The North Carolina Museum of History Foundation raises financial resources that enable the North Carolina Museum of History to preserve and interpret the history and culture of the Tar Heel State through dynamic exhibitions, educational programming, artifact acquisition, and object conservation. The Foundation also supports needed capital improvements at the Museum, as well as an Endowment Campaign for the future. With your support, we bring history to life. 

At the North Carolina Museum of History, we are dedicated to telling the stories of our statewide community. As a space for learning, thinking, and sharing, the Museum strives to be a resource for all visitors, students, and families, both in person and online. This past year, the Museum welcomed more than 465,000 guests, engaged with 147,698 students and teachers across North Carolina with educational resources, and welcomed another 122,280 virtually during our six-month closure due to COVID-19.

During the pandemic, a need to expand our Endowment to support Museum activities has become ever more apparent. All of our Museum programs and exhibitions are paid for with private funds. And, with the expansion of our building, our exhibition schedule, and our education program, we need your help now to reach new heights! Your investment is crucial to our longevity. Please consider a gift to the Endowment today. Call Dawn Lowder at 919.814.7076 to learn more or make a gift below. Thank you for supporting YOUR North Carolina Museum of History!
