Your Gift Brings the Museum to Life

Philanthropic support has never been more important or more necessary than it is right now. The Indiana State Museum and the State Historic Sites receives state funding to cover basic operational expenses, but private dollars are what provide the level of programming and exhibitions that make the museum come alive, and the promotional and outreach activities that share the museum with residents of the state and visitors from around the world. Your tax-deductable online contribution to the Indiana State Museum and State Historic Sites Foundation will be treated as an unrestricted gift, and applied to current-year exhibitions, programs and activities.

For more information on making a restricted gift to an endowment or to discuss planned giving, please contact the Foundation office at 317.233.9911 or foundation@indianamuseum.org.

At this time, tribute gifts in honor/memory of an individual or group cannot be made online. Please contact Ms. Charlie Shock to make a tribute gift via email at cshock@indianamuseum.org or phone at 317.233.9911.

Please indicate the name(s) as you would like to be recognized at the end of the checkout process in the comments field.

Field Trip Fund
In 2016, 60,000 Indiana schoolchildren visited the Indiana State Museum or one of the historic sites as part of the Free School Trip Fund Program, and effort made possible entirely by the generosity of donors. As educators' budgets continue to be squeezed, field trips would be cost prohibitive for many classes. Your contribution truly benefits the education of children state-wide by granting them hands-on, immersive experiences that grow their awareness of their state's history, and instill in them a sense of pride and place in Indiana.
