Memorial Hall exists solely through admissions and donations from Memorial Hall Foundation members and other history enthusiasts. The Museum receives no State, Municipal or Federal funding.
The Memorial Hall Foundation was founded in 1984. The Foundation created an endowment to support Louisiana’s oldest museum through annual contributions to Memorial Hall. These contributions help to offset the cost of exhibit restoration and operational expenses.
Donations are a mainstay of financial support for the museum. All donations are greatly appreciated and acknowledged with receipts.
