Unforgettable Doesn’t Just Happen
A new history center is the Wisconsin Historical Society’s biggest undertaking ever. To make it a reality, we need the support of bold, visionary, engaged people who believe in the power of history to make a difference. We’re counting on the support of people who understand the value of investing in transformational projects to benefit our past, present and future.

How your donation helps
Your donation supports the Society’s mission to collect, preserve, and share Wisconsin history.
To date, the Society has secured $112.3 million in State support and $39.5 million in private gifts.
An additional $27 million in private funds is needed to complete the project.
The Wisconsin Historical Foundation is deeply grateful to the early leaders in the campaign. Learn more about some of the people and businesses behind this project who are committed to bringing a new history center to Wisconsin.
“We hope our gift provides momentum and inspires others to invest in such a worthy project. This museum will provide Wisconsinites, no matter where they are living today, with a world-class facility to honor the state’s historic past and use that knowledge and experience to build a better future.”
– John & Sherry Stilin, Redmond, Wash.
