Our work relies 100% on private donations. We are working more diligently than ever to keep the Balboa Island Museum fresh, fun and full of opportunities.

A donation from you helps us:
  • Create one-of-a-kind exhibits.
  • Preserve Balboa Island’s written, oral and material history.
  • Create a more enriching community through public programs.
  • Plan financially for long term success.

Thanks to gifts from you, we were able to move to our new larger location and exceed our year-end campaign goal in new donations by the end of 2019.

Each gift from you, truly, means so much to us.
