In Honor of and Memorial Gifts

You can honor your friend, family member, or an extraordinary person who has made a difference in your life by making a gift in their name to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. Your contribution will support the Museum and provide the honoree a lasting legacy at the Museum.

We will send you a special card that you can give to the honoree or honoree’s family to notify them of your gift to the Museum in their name. Thank you for your support.

Thanks to the steadfast support of our loyal Members and donors, we are expanding and sharing digital resources with the world, impacting millions with unique stories from the collection, online exhibitions, and diverse experiences in American history—all through the African American lens.
