Help Us Preserve History

Restore Historic Fence

Our beautiful original wood fence around the side moat and at the front sides of the house is in desperate need of restoration. It is rotting. Water has seeped into the wood and the fence is gradually deteriorating. The estimate to repair is $32,000. Would you please consider helping us with a donation towards completing this critical preservation of history? Just press the red “Donate” button at the top of the page to pay via credit card. Please be sure to enter “Fence Repair” in the appropriate box. If you would like to pay via check, please send to Friends of Banning Museum, PO Box 1927, Wilmington, CA 90748 with the same designation of “Fence Repair” in the memo. Thank you for your consideration of this special request!

Gifts and Contributions

All gifts are greatly appreciated by the Friends of Banning Museum since they help us preserve the beautiful Banning, implement and expand our educational programs, renew our Collections and exhibitions and provide our guests of all ages with a memorable experience while on our campus.

There are many ways to make a gift to the Friends of Banning Museum.  And because we are a not-for-profit public charity corporation, your gift is deductible to the full extent of the law. For more information, contact the Friends of Banning Museum Office at (310) 548-2005.

Matching Gift Employers

Your company might have a Matching Gift Program that matches your gift dollar for dollar. Some companies even double or triple the amount of your gift – at no cost to you!

Check with your employer to find out if they have a matching gift program or to inquire about their policy on matching gifts. If your company doesn’t have a matching gift program, talk to them about starting one.

Many companies also match gifts from spouses and retired employees. (If you’ve already made a contribution to The Friends of Banning Museum and are within the time limit set by your company, you can still send us the forms and have your contribution matched.)
