History informs, inspires, and defines us. It opens us to new ideas, offers us new perspectives, and brings us closer to the future we long to create.
Fully tax-deductible donations of all sizes to the Minnesota Historical Society’s Annual Fund help MNHS provide ongoing support for programs that help students make connections between the past and the present.
