Support the Museum

At its core, history is a collection of stories of people doing ordinary and extraordinary things that have a profound impact on the world we see today. At the Charlotte Museum of History, we firmly believe that by holding a clear mirror to history, by sharing the stories of people’s perseverance in spite of adversity, we can encourage our community to work together to create common ground as we all move forward to create a better future. We cannot do this without you.

You can learn more about our organization's goals and how we put your donations to work for our community by reading our strategic plan or exploring our platinum certified Candid profile.
