Areas to Give

DONATE NOW is divided into three distinct Areas to Give categories for your consideration - GENERAL DONATION, TRUST FUND, and CALIFORNIA HISTORY DAY.  Each is equally worthy of your financial assistance as each has an important contribution to the success of CCHS.

GENERAL DONATION                                                 


Generally, Annual Membership Dues takes care of the administration expenses of CCHS. Interest from the Trust Fund also goes to the administrative expenses. If selected, General Donation will now help to defer these administrative costs and go directly to annual administrative expense. Administration costs consist of maintaining a virtual office with phone and email contact 5 days-a-week, 9am to 5pm; website development and maintenance including the expense of the CCHS domain name; maintaining the NationBuilder database including monthly subscription cost; and various other ever-changing administration expenses including the cost of a third party management company.


        DONATE NOW 

Making a donation to the CCHS Trust Fund ensures that CCHS can continue helping historians, and others who are interested in California history, to connect and share information by joining efforts to preserve records, artifacts, sites and buildings throughout the state of California. It also ensures CCHS can continue helping local societies and small museums learn about and put into practice the most effective management, acquisition, preservation and restoration techniques. We invite you to be a part of this mission. Make a contribution to the CCHS Trust Fund, get involved, preserve California history. More Trust Fund Information.
