Annual Fund 2014 Annual Fund 2012

It takes a special kind of place to survive, grow and thrive for 125 years. Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum has reigned proudly throughout history, beckoning people of all ages and from all parts of the world to explore.

From each new encounter, we take away a sense of place, shared legacy, and extended 'ohana. We return again and again. Bishop Museum is our Museum, the Museum of Hawai'i, and we are the keepers of its future.

Please consider a personal tribute and generous tax-deductible donation to the Annual Fund in honor of our 125th anniversary year. Gifts received by June 30th will be generously matched by Governor Ariyoshi’s
88th Beiju Birthday Fund
, doubling your impact. For your gift of $125 or more, you’ll also receive a special anniversary gift. Mahalo for your support in this very special year!
