Thank you for your interest in Culture & Heritage Museums. While 2020’s budgetary impact will be felt for a long time, any support you provide helps diminish it. Whatever amount you are able to give helps. Choose your gift amount here.

Fortunately, programing, education, and exhibit staff are striving to produce the quality you know and expect for the near future. Sites always stay focused on sharing the mission “to communicate and preserve the natural and cultural histories of the Carolina Piedmont, inspiring a lifetime of learning.”

CHM continues to offer a multitude of experiences that present the Carolina Piedmont’s rich traditions in unique and fun ways. Please share a gift with us to enable us to keep sharing with you and others.

Your tax-deductible gift provides vital support that sustains our preservation efforts as we continue to care for exhibits, artifacts, art, and archival material that represent our region, the Carolina Piedmont.
