Museum Support

Anyone can play a vital role in providing Museum support that allows us to provide the programs that preserve and share our community's rich history, art, and culture! There are many ways you can support PMH – be a member, volunteer, sponsor a Commemorative Tile, join a give back program, and more. Please click on the links below to learn more.

The CARES Act provision that offers you a tax benefit in return for your generosity was extended into 2021. Donors can use a universal tax deduction of up to $300 on their 2021 tax return ($600 if married and filing jointly) if they take the standard deduction. Please consult your tax advisor regarding 2021 tax deduction opportunities.
