Donor Legacy Wall Campaign

Join our CHSA Donor Legacy Wall Campaign!

Founded in 1963, CHSA has grown to be our nation’s leading organization dedicated to the documentation, study, and presentation of Chinese American history. Through exhibitions, publications, and educational, public programming, CHSA promotes the contributions and legacy of Chinese America.

In 2001, CHSA opened the CHSA Museum and Learning Center in the renovated former Chinatown YWCA designed by the famed architect Julia Morgan. The Museum serves as a permanent home for the story of Chinese in America with its galleries and collections. Your gift to the campaign will advance the sustainability of the Museum for years to come and secure the Museum’s ability to preserve and promote the history of Chinese in America.


Please consider making a special gift to the CHSA Donor Legacy Wall Campaign with a check or your credit card! Please write Donor Legacy Wall Campaign on the memo line. For your gift there are a variety of forms of recognition available depending on the level of contribution. All gifts $5,000 and above will be acknowledged in a special donor wall to be displayed on the Main Museum Gallery Floor. Donors will be able to dedicate their gift in honor or in memory of a family member of friend.


Legacy Wall funds are unrestricted fund that support CHSA operations. They help underwrite free tickets for low income residents, educational field trips for school children, pubic programs such as film screenings, book talks and artist lectures, and help to support the museum in general.
