Donate time, money, or historic items


We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities, and have plenty of interesting projects that need your time and effort.  Let us know what interests you, what your skills are, or what specific project you'd like to help with!  Below is a link to the City of Gilroy volunteer application.  You can submit it by email, fax, or snail-mail, carrier pigeon (we are history buffs, after all), or in person:
