Get Involved!

Giving is a two way exchange that fills the heart and makes great things happen! There are many ways to support the BEMF. You can contribute by donating, volunteering, or by becoming a member!


Donations of funds or materials help make the museum and the foundation's various programs possible and can improve its capacity to serve its community. A couple of goals are to secure a new, larger location for the museum and to acquire a bus for activities and tours. No donation is too small or too large, and all are greatly appreciated! As the BEMF is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, most donations are tax deductible. Here are some suggested ways to donate.

Donations of Items of Historical Importance

Do you have research, objects, photos, or antiquities that can supplement and strengthen the historical narrative of the museum? Consider granting this important material to help preserve our history!

Contribute to BEMF's Initiatives

In addition to the museum, the foundation also has programs and a scholarship that need your support. Notably, the BEMF Anti-Violence Program and the Burnett-Eaton HS/College Sophomore Scholar "Save My Seat In College" scholarship.
