1. Online Donation

The Coronado Historical Association is the premier steward of Coronado’s unique history, treasures, and stories in our community.  One of the Association’s fundamental goals is to encourage appreciation of our local history, and this is certainly achieved through the Association’s Museum and committed volunteers. As the custodian of Coronado’s treasures and stories, the Association continues to foster best practices for the historic collections and develop its research services. Looking ahead, the Association’s primary goals are to expand capacity, strengthen operations, and ensure future viability as responsible community partners.

Your support and the generous support of community members like you will allow us to provide engaging and educational exhibits and programs for Coronadans of all ages. Your online donation is 100% tax-deductible. Simply select the donation level from the list below and complete your donation.
