Make an Impact – Donate Today

Thank you for caring about the South Florida Museum. As the largest natural and cultural history museum on Florida’s Gulf Coast, we have impact on the community in many ways – through creative and timely exhibitions, engaging school and public programs, specialized teacher training and endangered species conservation. Your gift will support fascinating and innovative events and presentations throughout the year in addition to helping us feed and care for Snooty and his manatee companions undergoing rehabilitation.

The South Florida Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies on individual and corporate support for its exhibits, programs and daily operations. There are many opportunities to give, with various benefits to you for your gift.

Your support of the Museum is needed to continue the commitment made when it was founded in 1946 to provide excellence in education about Florida’s life ways, waterways and nature ways and to protect and conserve our history for future generations.
