Our Mission is to safeguard and share Miami’s stories, to foster learning, inspire a sense of place, and cultivate an engaged community. 

For more than 84 years, HistoryMiami Museum has been the custodian of our community’s memories, thanks to the support of friends like you. Today, more than ever, we depend on the generous donations of our supporters to help move our future and dreams for the community forward. Kindly consider making a gift to sustain our work and contribute to a better tomorrow, for everyone who calls Miami home.

There are many ways you can invest in Miami’s history.

Your gift will go right to work to support HistoryMiami Museum’s exhibitions, collections and community-focused offerings, such as school programs, tours and family-friendly events for everyone in Miami. We welcome donations to our History Fund and the Orange Blossom Society, tribute gifts, corporate sponsorship, planned gifts, stock gifts, donations to our endowment or the sponsorship of a bird from our Birds of America collection by John James Audubon. We truly appreciate our friends who choose to invest in Miami’s history and future.

The History Fund supports the greatest needs of the Museum. Contributions to The History Fund assist with providing educational programs, exhibitions, innovative technology, the acquisition of rare artifacts and much more. Your gift to The History Fund is an investment in the community and the historical preservation of Miami Dade County.

Sponsorship can paid through monthly or quarterly installments. Sponsorship: Florida Bird $10,000 National Birds (non-Florida) $2,500
A gift made to HistoryMiami Museum’s endowment fund will still be supporting our programs decades from now, when today’s children bring their own little ones to the museum to learn about and experience their history and heritage. This is one gift that is truly timeless. We can also create named funds to honor a loved one or fund a program that is especially meaningful to you. Contact us at 305.375.1618 or email Hilda Masip at Hmasip@historymiami.org for giving options that are accessible to anyone.
