Ways To Give

Support Bishop Museum

Join a community of supporters committed to Bishop Museum’s collections, research, and education programs. The deeper your engagement, the more central you are to Bishop Museum’s core values and strengths—and the greater your impact on the issues you care most about.

Your donation to Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum’s annual fund will ensure that the legacy of this great institution is perpetuated for Hawai‘i’s next generation.  Please consider a generous tax-deductible donation in support of unrivaled Hawaiian and Pacific collections, fascinating stories, and new discoveries.

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.
