Like all American museums, the Berkeley Historical Society & Museum depends largely on private donations. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your gifts are tax deductible to the extent provided by law. The only financial support we receive from the City of Berkeley is deeply discounted rent.
We have a small but growing endowment fund that will help ensure future financial stability.
Donations of any size are greatly appreciated. You can donate through our Square site or, of course, by mailing or dropping off a check.
Please consider including the Berkeley Historical Society (or its successor organization) in your estate planning for a gift of lasting impact on the city you love.
