Her Story is Our Story

Help tell the story of women in America by supporting the Smithsonian's American Women's History Initiative.

You can help launch the Smithsonian's American Women's History Initiative!

The Smithsonian's impact is felt far beyond the National Mall. Not only do our museums provide unforgettable experiences to millions of visitors each year, but our scientists, researchers, and curators also work across disciplines to expand our knowledge and solve some of the world's most pressing problems.

Now we seek to tell the stories of women in America, amplifying their pivotal roles in building and sustaining our country. Your generous support will allow the Smithsonian to hire the best educators and curators, mentor interns, and launch groundbreaking exhibitions and public programming that reach a global audience.

It all starts with you! We rely on the generosity of curious, passionate people like you to continue developing landmark exhibitions and conducting cutting-edge research for the public good. That's because federal funding only covers about 60% of what we need to maintain the Smithsonian's incredible exhibitions, groundbreaking research, and world-class educational programming. The rest of our funding comes from people like you who are dedicated to discovering, spreading, and preserving knowledge.

Will you help keep the Smithsonian thriving with a special tax-deductible gift in support of the American Women's History Initiative today?
