The Founding Member Campaign is the first phase of the new Membership Program initiated by the Florida Historic Capitol Foundation (FHCF). The FHCF is a 501 (c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide monetary support, advocacy, and stewardship to promote the Florida Historic Capitol Museum and its program of civic education. The Founding Member Campaign provides an exclusive, one-time opportunity for donors to support the Museum and to be recognized in perpetuity for their gift. The campaign is open to all donors and includes individuals, families, corporations, foundations, and all other funding partners.

All Founding Members are recognized for their gift on a donor wall, which incorporates historic copper removed from the dome and cupola in its design, and is permanently displayed in the First Floor Rotunda along the north wall adjacent to the Grand Staircase. This is a prominent location within the historic interior space of the building, giving our donors the heightened level of visibility by visitors to the Historic Capitol that is deserving of their support.
