Donate to the Catalina Island Museum

An Anchor of Tradition. A Beacon of Culture. Inspiring our Communities.

Your tax-deductible gift will help us stay resilient as we focus on our top priority to share the museum’s collections, stories and exhibitions through free or low-cost virtual programs for all and educational “to-go” projects geared for the younger set. 


In the necessity to operate virtually over this past year, we found that not only were you and many others willing to log-on and join us – you even liked it! And that inspired us. In no other year has the Catalina Island Museum provided as much educational content, had a more engaged staff, or cultivated as many first-time donors to give a little – all lessons we will carry forward with us into a brighter future. 


Now that we are open, we are excited to share our world-class Titanic: Real Artifacts, Real People, Real Stories exhibition, the adventures of Gayle Garner Roski who traveled to the seafloor to paint Titanic and the nostalgia of two of Catalina’s most iconic sights of yesteryear in our new Seaplanes of Catalina and Bird Park gallery installations. 


Every gift has an impact and helps us carry out what no other museum in the world does – preserve and promote Catalina Island through exceptional exhibitions and experiences designed for you.  


Thank you very much – we cannot do it without you.
