Memberships are the solid financial foundation supporting all of our  programs and activities. The historical museum exists because over many years we’ve had financial contributions and volunteer assistance from thousands of generous individuals, businesses, and foundations.

We have two ways for you to manage your membership: monthly automatic contributions or traditional annual payments—see below for a more detailed description of these options. North American Reciprocal Museum Association benefits* are extended to all memberships totaling $120 per year or more.

Whichever method you choose and whatever level of support you contribute, you can be assured that you are helping to keep Bainbridge Island’s stories alive for generations to come. Thank you!

Sustaining Membership

A sustaining membership is a convenient monthly charge to your credit/debit card or a withdrawal from your checking account.  You decide on a comfortable monthly donation and your membership will automatically renew each year. You may change or stop your membership payment at any time by calling or emailing us.

Sustaining members are crucial to providing an ongoing base of community support that we can rely on.  If you have an annual membership you may switch to a sustaining membership at any time.

It’s easy and automatic for you – and we both save on stamps, paperwork, and processing time.
