Make A Donation

As a not-for-profit museum, we rely on grants, donations, and memberships to fund our operations.

Impacting Education

The education programs of the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida are not designed to expose young people to the horrors of the past, but to introduce them to the very real people who lived that history. Meeting these people and learning their stories inspire us to do better, to be better.

Anneliese at VLMS

“It was a privilege to witness a Holocaust Survivor’s story. I will always remember Anneliese asking us to respect each other and live peacefully. I will think of that the rest
of my existence.”
Annette N., Lexington Middle School Student
