Support the Sacramento History Museum

Big Day of Giving:

The Sacramento History Museum will once again be participating in the BIG Day of Giving, Thursday, May 4th, 2017. This 24-hour online fundraiser brings the Sacramento Region together to give where their heart is. Dollars donated on the Big Day of Giving have the chance to raise additional funds though random matches and prize challenges.

All you have to do is donate at! You can schedule your donation starting April 14th, or wait until May 4th and be part of the action!
