Giving Opportunities

Annual Fund

Gifts to the Annual Fund power the heart of our mission, helping to underwrite exhibitions, events, and programs. These gifts also support school and community group tours and activities, multi-generational learning experiences, and our popular lecture series. Any employer matching gifts count toward your total annual contribution. Additionally, gifts of appreciated securities offer a number of tax advantages over a cash gift. For more information about gifts of appreciated securities, please contact our Treasurer Wendell Kerr.

Tribute, Memorial, and “IN LIEU OF” GIFTS

Give a gift in honor or memory of friends and family, especially when donations are requested in lieu of gifts. Supporting the Cupertino Historical Society and Museum connects the past with the future, and is an especially meaningful way to celebrate special occasions and remember loved ones. 

For more information or to make a gift, please contact Wendell Kerr, Treasurer.
