Tributes and Memorials offer a wonderful way to honor family and friends and support Bishop Museum’s collections, exhibitions, and educational programs at the same time. The mission of Bishop Museum, to study, preserve and tell the stories of the cultures and natural history of Hawai‘i and the Pacific, cannot be accomplished without your support.

With over 330,000 families visiting the Museum each year, there is no better way to pay tribute or remember a loved one in a meaningful and recognizable way than through a tribute or memorial gift at Bishop Museum.

Tribute Gifts

A Tribute Gift provides a meaningful, living tribute to a friend, relative, or colleague by commemorating a special occasion. Celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and other special events with a Tribute gift to the Museum in honor of your loved one.  For more information, please 808.848.4172, or contact us via email:

Memorial Gifts

You can also remember a loved one or express your sympathy with a Memorial gift to the Museum. A Memorial is a personal remembrance that honors a deceased friend, relative, or colleague.

A charitable contribution in a loved one’s name to the Museum is a unique and meaningful gift. Your contribution will be acknowledged with a personalized card sent to the honored individual or family. For more information, please 808.848.4172, or contact us via email:

Recognition Opportunities

Named gifts may bear your name, your family name, your company’s name, or the name of someone you wish to honor or memorialize. Through a named gift, the generous support of the donor or designee can be appropriately recognized as a permanent part of Bishop Museum. Named gift opportunities may be permanently attached to tangible areas within a Museum building or facility, but may also be used to endow the Museum’s general operations, specific programs, or chairs. For more information, please 808.848.4172, or contact us via email:
