The Chinese-American Museum of Chicago has come a long way in its rebuilding efforts after the devastating fire of 2008. We still have a long way to go, both to rebuild our collection and make our building fully functional. We need your help!

Donor Wall

Donors who give more than $1,000 will be recognized on an illuminated wall of glass bricks. Each brick will feature either the name of a person, family or corporation or can honor. A smaller brick shows a gift of $1000. A large brick shows a gift of $5000 or more.

Donation of Artifacts

As a relatively new organization, CAMOC relies on the generosity of the greater Chicago community for its physical objects. Historical objects, documents, photographs, etc. all play an important part in telling our story. If you have any objects related to the Chinese-American experience in the Midwest, please consider making a permanent donation to our Museum.

CAMOC takes very seriously its responsibility for the appropriate care of your donation. Because we have limited space and resources for storage of objects, please keep in mind that we will only accept objects we can properly care for.

In addition to physical objects, CAMOC has an ongoing oral history project and would like to hear your family story.

For more information on being interviewed for our archives, or to donate objects, please contact us at 312-949-1000, or email
