You Can Make A Difference

Why Give

Your Gift Supports Free Programming

As an independent 501(c)3 non-profit institution, less than half of our revenue comes from membership and program fees. We rely on generous donors like you to support our work.

Your gift provides the critical funding necessary to enhance and expand free programs and services.

Preservation and Maintenance

Since its beginning the JHSFC has relied upon the financial generosity of our supporters. Individuals who are passionate about public history education continue to help our organization by supporting our exhibitions and programs. Individuals who have a special interest in historic preservation ensure the conservation of our collections.


Help us inspire others to create a better future through historical understanding.

What You Can Give


One of the most common ways to make a gift to is to write a check, make a gift using a credit card, or donate online.

Appreciated Securities

Giving appreciated stock that you owned for more than one year is one of the most tax-advantaged ways to make charitable gifts. With careful planning, you can reduce your capital gains tax while supporting JHSFC.

Matching Gifts

Your gift to JHSFC could be matched by your employer! Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees, and/or employees’ spouses. Check with your human resources department to see if your company has a matching gift program.
