Donations

Did you know the Museum relies on individual donations for the majority of our funding? Help support our programming and exhibitions, including our current exhibit, "World War I Centennial: Heaven, Hell, or Hoboken," extended through July 1, 2018.

**Special Year-End Donation Period: Every dollar donated by Dec. 31, 2017, will be matched by a pledge of up to $10,000 from a group of former and current trustees!**

The WWI Centennial exhibit focuses on the transformation of Hoboken and its residents after the U.S. entered World War I in April 1917 and converted the city into the main port of embarkation for the U.S Expeditionary Forces, destined for Europe. The exhibit will evoke life in Hoboken during the Great War, with

  • Silent films of soldiers gathered at the Hoboken port 
  • US government war posters (on loan from the Jersey City Free Public Library) designed to boost local draft registration, and urge those on the "home front" to purchase war bonds, conserve resources, and help with the war effort
  • Personal photographs, letters, uniforms, and commemorative items from individual Hobokenites, including Mrs. Frank R. Markey, who worked with the Red Cross assisting soldiers, and Peter G. Spinetto, a doughboy who sent postcards from the fields of war in France to his large family on the city’s west side.  

With your support we can continue to grow and innovate, keeping Hoboken's stories alive for people to appreciate today and tomorrow.
