More than business, O Museum is a way of life. it is not about us, the "house" or our employees, it is about our guests. As a small private museum, we combine art, architecture, literature and inspiration to craft an exhilarating, entertaining experience for all who visit. First and foremost, we strive to put our guests first; immersing them in music, art, literature, architecture and creativity. We create an experience that inspires each and every individual in a positive way. It is a place where dreams come true and where imagination is the rule, not the exception.

As an extension of our family and the creative process, you need to be: selfless, self-motivated, able to follow procedures, flexible, have blind faith, lots of ambition, and drive.

We always have room for creative, passionate, hardworking people. to accommodate a global footprint, many of our teammates telecommute from around the world.

If you have talent or expertise to lend, don't worry about your location. send us your resume, a short video or audio tape (or even your youtube links) on how you think you can help and why you want to join our team.

Applicants that display heart and a desire to learn will be considered for volunteer and docent opportunities.

There are no paid employees or board members. Everyone is a volunteer.

Sponsor a Hero or Artist

Expressing love is a risk.  Same with opening our doors with our on-going artists and heroes-in-residence program.  But for those of us who allow our dreams to transform and become reality, there is no risk.   By helping others, by sharing our world, what may be risk to some is simply the pursuit of passion and mission to us.

When you sponsor a hero and/or artist you are helping to provide them an opportunity to rest, recover, and rediscover their heart and muse.  By offering respite to artists, service people, first responders and all those who are giving of themselves to serve others, we can give them hope - and each of us - a chance to renew, create and grow.

Monthly Donor

Our monthly donors' program, is a wonderful way to provide the reliable support that is so vital to supporting the foundation, exhibits and our Heroes and Artists-in-Residence program.

Preserving and sharing the creative process is an on-going venture; and to successfully accomplish that, we rely on steady, predictable funding.

When you make a monthly commitment to the O Street Museum Foundation, it means our curators and staff can remain focused on exploring and sharing all forms of creative expression.

How it works:

  • You determine the amount you would like to give each month
  • We will charge your pledge to your credit card each month (charges are made on or around the same date each month)
  • We will send you an e-mail each month, confirming the charge was made
  • Each January, we will send you an annual giving statement which can be used for tax purposes
  • Your membership will automatically renew each year
  • It's simple, secure and one of the best ways that you can support the O Street Museum Foundation

Many donors choose to have their monthly gift charged to a credit card. This option is most efficient as it creates a seamless transaction for all. You can use our safe and secure online form to become a monthly donor with a credit card today.

There are many ways for you to leave a legacy that reflects how the O Street Museum has enriched your life:

Art, Artifacts, Memorabilia and Personal Property

Gifts of art, artifacts, memorabilia or other personal property are always welcome. If you are considering such a gift, please contact us.


One of the simplest ways to support the O Street Museum, a bequest provides a gift for the museum in your will or trust. A bequest is not subject to Federal or state estate or inheritance taxes and is deductible in calculating your taxable estate.

Life Insurance & Retirement Fund Accounts

You can provide now for a future gift to the museum by naming the O Street Museum Foundation as beneficiary of your life insurance and/or retirement plan. Naming the Foundation as beneficiary is a seemless, cost effective way to ensure your gift is administered to your specifications.

Real Estate

Donating your residential, commercial or undeveloped property will be used to support the Museum while providing you with excellent tax benefits and reducing the responsibilities of ownership.

Remainder Trust

Establishing a charitable remainder trust is a great way to ensure you and your loved ones receive designated regular lifetime payments and the O Street Museum Foundation receives the remainder at the end of the life of the trust.


Donating appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds is quick, simple and may provide you with significant tax benefits.

If you have questions on how you can provide future gifts to the Museum, please contact us.

Please consult your financial advisor when considering a donation.
