Invest in Washington State Heritage Center Programs
Your support makes possible the Heritage Center programs that educate, entertain
and intrigue people of all ages.
Heritage Center exhibits are an opportunity to share Washington’s rich history and
interesting people with the more than 30,000 school children, international visitors
and people from other states who come to the Capitol. Exhibits are typically on
display for a year, then are made available to travel to museums and other venues.
All exhibit production must be privately funded through the generosity of donors.
As an exhibit donor, you will be recognized in the exhibit as a donor and will receive
invitations to all exhibit-related events.
The Legacy Project:
The continuing story of Washington is a remarkable one shared by political leaders
and the citizens they serve. The Legacy Project documents life stories of influential
people. Many, in the face of controversy and the most challenging circumstances,
refused to give up and inspired change and more importantly, have inspired others
to follow in their footsteps.
Your support for the Legacy Project’s biographies and oral histories helps us make
those stories available in book, on-line and e-book formats that are available to
people world-wide. Your gift is acknowledged in the book that you support and you
receive a complimentary copy of the book.
The Washington State Library:
The Library collects and shares with the public, professionals, researchers, and
students Washington newspapers, Pacific Northwest history and culture, and government
publications filled with information on business, consumer information, health and
nutrition, legal and regulatory information, demographics and numerous other subjects.
With your support, the Library can continue to teach people how to use those resources
for family history, encourage youth to read, and grow their collections on Washington’s
The Washington State Archives:
The Archives collections record the actions of government agencies, as well as the
fundamental events and conditions of our families and our communities. From handwritten
entries in handsome leather-bound books to digitized electronic data to photographs,
these documents reveal the dynamic history of the people and government of Washington
From time to time, valuable and important historical documents of Washington that
have been in the hands of private collectors come available. Donors can help the
Archives acquire these items, preserving them and making them available to the public.
Your support can make that happen.
The Washington State Heritage Center Trust is the 501 (c) (3) non-profit charitable

support of the Heritage Center and its activities. A fifteen-member volunteer Board
of Trustees oversees the operation of the Trust ensuring that all gifts are used
as the donor intends.
