Ways to Give

Support Bishop Museum

Through your kind kōkua, Bishop Museum has been able to continue doing our work in culture, history, and the natural sciences, during this unprecedented year.

Meet a few of our team members that work behind the scenes at Bishop Museum, and who want to mahalo the community for past donations. Learn how your support funds their daily priorities for collections care, meaningful research, educational programming, and more.

Gift Planning

Keep Bishop Museum thriving with your planned gift while taking advantage of numerous tax and financial benefits. Leave a legacy to be remembered by future generations.

When you gift a Bishop Museum membership to a student or family, you are gifting 12 months of access to our unparalleled collection of Hawaiian and Pacific artifacts and active scientific research through exhibitions and programming, and so much more.

Does your employer sponsor a matching gift program to increase the impact of charitable gifts made by its employees? If so, kindly provide your company’s matching gifts form when you make your donation and we’ll take care of the rest.

Send your form to development@bishopmuseum.org or mail to:

Bishop Museum Development Office
1525 Bernice Street
Honolulu, HI 96817-2704

Gift of appreciated securities — stocks, bonds, and mutual funds — can be a wonderful way to make a gift to the Museum’s Annual Fund and provide significant tax benefits at the same time. Please contact our Development Office at 808.848.4187, or contact us via email: development@bishopmuseum.org

What better way to celebrate a special moment in the life of a friend or family member than by making a meaningful gift in his or her name? You may also make a Memorial Gift in memory of a loved one with a gift to the Annual Fund.
