Your Support Makes a Difference!
The Carpinteria Valley Museum of History is a self-sustaining private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. We raise our operating revenue through membership support, memorial donations, fund-raising activities, grants, and investments. Without admission fees, the museum is truly accessible to all. Your generosity makes our educational and exhibition programs possible and is the key to our continued success.
