Donors like you make it possible for the Historical Society of Pennsylvania to serve not only as Philadelphia's premier research library, but the nation's. From cherished family diaries to original founding documents, our 21 million item collection encompasses the story of America and the story of you. Your contribution helps to support all of HSP's collectionm including storage, conservation, library services, and educational programs—including online lesson plans and exhibitions.

The Annual Fund also helps to support our publications: Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography (PMHB) and Legacies magazine. Unrestricted donations help cover these costs:

  • $50  Pays for one teacher to attend a K-12 workshop
  • $75  Supports the digitization of 5 documents and graphics
  • $100  Helps us assist one genealogist for a full day of research
  • $150  Supports four hours of archival processing
  • $500  Will make 25 acid-free corrugated board boxes
  • $1,000  Supports four public programs
  • $6,000  Sponsors HSP's scholarly journal, PMHB
  • $10,000  Allows us to create a new conservation work station
  • $15,000  Supports the production of our Legacies magazine


Thank you for making our work possible!
