Whatever your life situation, you can help the History Center fulfill our mission and continue to play an important role in Bloomington and Monroe County. There are a number of ways to support the History Center that do not require membership dues:

  • Apply to volunteer.
  • Connect your name or your business’s name to what we do here at the History Center by sponsoring or underwriting any of our events, including our annual gala and garage sale
  • Join our email lists.
  • Help to spread the word by sharing the things you enjoy at the History Center via social media – and don’t forget to follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.
  • Bring a friend to visit. The number of visitors that come to see us are an important piece of the story that we share when applying for grants. The more people who visit, the more impact we have on the community.
  • Fill out a survey. We use these responses to learn about our community’s interests and needs, and how we can help. Statements shared with us are also a valuable resource to use when we apply for grants.
