Donate to Tempe Historical Society!

Your donation helps preserve and share the history and heritage of Tempe. Each gift allows the Tempe Historical Society to take a lead role in the preservation of the objects, stories, photographs and memories of the past – both ancient and recent – that makes our community unique. Funds raised are used to engage the public in programs and events such as Lunch Talks and Hayden’s Ferry Days; restore pieces of our history such as the Minder Binder Restaurant water wagon and maintain the historic 1892 Petersen House.

Another way to support the work of Tempe History Society is by becoming a Member! Starting at just $25 per year, membership gives benefits such as a discount in the museum store, discounts to events, sneak peeks at new exhibits, member-only events and more. Join online through our online store, drop by the museum, or send in a check to be a part of preserving and sharing Tempe’s history.


Every gift, large and small, matters. Click the “Donate” button to make your contribution.
