Donate to the Historical Society of Morro Bay

Thank you for considering the Historical Society for your financial support.

We are working on several important projects, not to mention general maintenance of our collections, all of which need financial support. 

  • Franklin Riley Park:  this new park which the Society successfully sponsored to the City of Morro Bay needs development. We have a dedicated fund for it.
  • Hidden History: we continue to research topics in Morro Bay's history that have been covered over by development or forgotten. These topics become interpretive panels at key locations around the city.
  • Museum: we continue to look for a permanent home!
  • Collections development: while we look for a museum, we continue to acquire artifacts and records that we need to store safely.

Most non-profits rely on contributions from members and friends to fulfill their mission and we are no exception.  There are several ways you may make a donation.

Direct, unrestricted donations support our operational expenses.  This includes our quarterly meetings and programs, occasional special events, our newsletter and website, and our ongoing work to collect, preserve, and present the history of our area.
