Support the ongoing educational efforts of the Japanese American National Museum!

JANM was honored by the Institute of Museum and Library Services with a National Medal in 2010 for creating landmark exhibitions, innovative public programs, and educational programs in partnership with educators. Through the Japanese American experience, students—more than 10,000 each year—and many others learn invaluable lessons about the importance of diversity in democracy.

You can secure a better future for our younger generation, and make a future with greater tolerance and understanding of our nation’s diversity.

Please make a gift today to help us continue our important work! You can make either a general donation to the museum, a gift in honor or memory of a loved one, or honor a favorite child in the Children's Courtyard.
