As the Jewish Online Museum is a charitable, not-for-profit organisation largely reliant upon private funding and some public funding, contributions and donations for its operation and ongoing function as a collecting and publishing museum are welcomed.
There are however, a number of ways you can make a valuable contribution to the museum. The first is through financial donation, where you may wish to gift a sum of monies to the Jewish Online Museum Trust. If you do wish to make a donation of this kind, please contact the Chair of the JoM Trust, David J Ross and discuss how you might support the ongoing work of the museum, and become a Friend and supporter of the JoM.
The second way to make a contribution to the JoM is through donating your permission for us to reproduce, and/or represent in an agreed and attributed way, items from your personal or organisational collection including stories, images, objects, documents and recordings that help to tell the story of Jewish heritage and culture in New Zealand. If you have anything you think the museum would benefit from sharing with the wider world through its website and publishing function, or you feel may be of interest to JoM's curatorial team, please contact our current JoM Curator, Keren Cook.
Lastly, if you have curatorial or editorial expertise and have an interesting idea, collection or exhibition you'd like to develop for the museum, please contact Keren Cook and discuss our programming and your possible contribution to that programming. For more detail on the curatorial criteria we use to commission artworks and editorial content, or accept donations, please visit the About pages, and read our JoM Curatorial Policy.
