Why Giving to JANM Matters

The Japanese American National Museum relies on the generosity of its friends and supporters to meet the enormous cost of providing programs and services, year-round, to hundreds of thousands of local, national, and international visitors.

Your membership or gift will ensure that the museum is able to continue its tradition of excellence in producing exhibitions, public programs, publications and educational materials to preserve, interpret, and share the experiences of Japanese Americans.

MEMBERSHIP GIVING OPPORTUNITIES DONATIONS

 

I became a member of JANM in the early 1990s because I felt the Museum’s mission was important. At that time, no other organization was educating the public about Japanese American history and its larger lessons for all Americans. What makes the Museum special is its historical exhibit and its docents…JANM provides an opportunity for us to give back to the community in a meaningful way and enjoy the camaraderie among other volunteers and Museum staff. That is why I love being a member of the Museum!
