HELP US BUILD A NEW MUSEUM BY 2020
Join Vision2020 and help create the New Museum of LGBTQ History and Culture in San Francisco. We’re only just beginning this multiyear effort to build a comprehensive center for LGBTQ public history that will do justice to our richly diverse community’s past. All funds will help the GLBT Historical Society build its development capacity in preparation for a capital campaign. To join us in this vital work, please make a tax-deductible donation today: glbthistory.org/donate
Help keep the story alive
Your support ensures the preservation, exhibition and interpretation of GLBT history — including little-known people, events and organizations that played a vital role. Thanks to you, we can grow our collection of important historical materials, showcase them in the museum and preserve them for the benefit of future generations. We’re a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. GLBT Historical Society members receive advance notice of upcoming exhibitions, programs and other events. Members get free admission for themselves and a guest at the museum and they enjoy expanded research hours (by appointment) at the archives.
