Support the BMI for GivingTuesday.

Protect Baltimore’s Unique Industrial Heritage

School field trips, fundraisers, and weddings represent 65% of the BMI’s annual operating income, and until they can resume on-site, YOUR donation is needed to protect the objects, photographs and stories of the people who built Baltimore.

Consider signing up for monthly giving. You can make a big impact for a small amount each month, and help the BMI face less uncertainty in a rapidly changing world.

Funds

By contributing to the BMI, you are preserving the objects, photographs, and stories of the people who built Baltimore and those who are shaping its future.

Four decades ago, Baltimore’s identity as a manufacturing center was being threatened. As factories closed and machines were being cast aside, our beloved city faced an uncertain future. In response to those challenges, people just like YOU created the BMI to help save the city’s unique heritage. Now, as we face another period of uncertainty, the BMI needs YOUR help to continue protecting Baltimore’s industrial past.

Annual Fund

Support the BMI’s amazing collection, making it possible for the stories of these businesses and workers to live on.

The BMI’s collections highlight the contributions of American innovators, past and present, whose enterprises have transformed our society. Often the only surviving remnants of once thriving industries that no longer exist, these objects need constant care and maintenance so that they can continue to inspire and educate audiences.

Collection Fund

Help students access the fun and hands-on learning of a traditional BMI Field trip from home.

Your gift funds the development of interactive, digital field trips and BMI’s City Kits—activity boxes with all the materials kids need to engage in a remote learning about our city’s industrial history and the hard working people who are a part of that story.

Outreach Education Fund
