Why Give

Keeping history alive is not without expenses. Your donation helps us preserve our collections, purchase archival materials, and plan programs. Without your donations, so much would be lost forever

There are many ways to give and support the vital work of preserving and disseminating local history. You can make a direct donation online or via mail. You can make a gift “in honor of” or “in memory of” a family member or friend with your donation.

If your employer conducts a matched giving campaign, consider designating the SBHRF as the recipient for your contributions, and make your gift doubly meaningful. You can set up a monthly sustaining donation through your bank or credit card. you can leave an enduring legacy of connecting people to the past and to the place they live by collecting, preserving, and exhibiting the material history of Long Beach.
