The California Museum depends on the generosity of our Museum family and friends to meet the enormous cost of producing exhibits, providing fantastic programming and inspiring the tens of thousands of schoolchildren that visit us each year.
The California Museum is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Income from admissions, store sales and facility rentals account for only a small fraction of our operating costs. Individual and corporate gifts, foundation grants, exhibit sponsorship, charitable giving (such as United Way) and fundraisers must make up for the rest.
