Museum with Vistors

Make a Donation

As we celebrate more than 200 years of Jewish life in Iowa and more than 20 years as a historical society, your support can make a real difference.

Without your help, the stories of Jewish life in Iowa and the documents and artifacts that we preserve could be lost to future generations. Your generosity enables us to continue this important work in ways above and beyond what our membership fees are able to fund, such as the upgrades to our collection storage, reaching out and welcoming more students and visitors of all ages, and finding new ways to share our history with people in our state and around the world.

Donate to the Iowa Jewish Historical Society

Annual gifts provide general operating support to all areas of the museum. These gifts enable the Iowa Jewish Historical Society to inspire people from every background to connect with and preserve Iowa’s Jewish history and culture every day. But we can’t do it alone.

Your tax-deductible gift supports:

  • General operating expenses that help us with everything from developing new exhibits to ensuring that the artifacts in our collection are cared for so that they’re available for future generations to see
  • Free tours for students of all ages who are studying the Holocaust and the lives and contributions of the Jewish people of Iowa
  • Thought-provoking programs for the general public

To give by mail, please send your check to:
