Santa Monica History Museum is dedicated to preserving and sharing our growing historical collections and extensive archives with our community. But we can’t do it without your help. Your support has never been more important to the future of the History Museum.

Tax-advantaged giving supports the Santa Monica History Museum and offers potential tax advantages to the donor. The SMHM will work with you to help structure gifts of securities, life insurance, and real estate. Planned gifts provide deferred but irrevocable benefits to SMHM. We will be happy to provide you with information on Charitable Remainder Trusts, Wills or Living Trusts, and Reserved Life Estates.
