MOHA Membership

While we may be closed, we want you to know how valuable you are to us—and your statewide community. Membership to the North Carolina Museum of History helps fund crucial education and outreach initiatives like our History at Home digital resources page. Please check back with us periodically as we update this page with information regarding your membership during the closure, our plans for when we reopen, and the continued impact your support has on our wonderful state.

 

Also, please note the new tax deduction information provided at the bottom of the page that is part of the new CARES Act.

 

As a member of MOHA, you help make an enormous impact on the community around you, as well as communities across the state of North Carolina. How? Through your support of the Museum’s extraordinary exhibitions, its outstanding community and educational programs, and its efforts to acquire artifacts important to our state’s history. You also help by improving accessibility to the Museum for anyone who wishes to visit. Without MOHA members, many students, teachers, and families would not have access to the Museum.

As part of the CARES Act, changes to tax benefits were made to encourage charitable giving. Beginning in 2020, individuals can take $300 above-the-line deduction for cash contributions to charities, regardless of whether or not you itemize your deductions. We recommend you consult a tax professional or your accountant for details and specifics.
