Join us in supporting the Sheldon Jackson Museum The Friends of Sheldon Jackson Museum is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has been supporting the Sheldon Jackson Museum and part of the Sitka community for over 30 years. Our mission is to support the Sheldon Jackson Museum and its unique Alaska Native ethnographic collection through advocacy, acquisition and educational programming. Each year, with the support of the Friends, the Sheldon Jackson Museum offers numerous free public programs and events, ranging from youth programs and school visits to lectures and workshops. The Friends are also proud to support the Native Artist Residency Program. Additionally, the Friends help the museum share artifacts with kids all over Alaska by purchasing items for the Sheldon Jackson Museum’s Hands-on Loan Collection, which can then be borrowed by educators to use in their classrooms. We hope you’ll consider joining our incredible organization and helping us continue our important mission!
