Capital Campaign

The Portland Chinatown History Foundation is in the midst of a multi-phase capital campaign to make the Portland Chinatown History Museum a reality.

Phase I (2016 – 2017)

Open our doors and permanently remount Beyond the Gate

In addition to the museum grade installation of the Beyond the Gate exhibition, the Phase I museum also includes a temporary exhibit and performance space, education and meeting space, library, and offices.


Phase II (2018 – 2021)

Buy our building outright, complete its development and expand our programming

In Phase II we purchase the building outright, add an additional story, restore the historic 1920 façade, and make seismic and climate control upgrades. This phase will introduce a new museum collections areas, additional program, education, office and retail spaces, and enhanced audiovisual and museum lighting systems.

Your generous contribution will allow us to achieve our mission to honor, preserve, and interpret the history and heritage of Portland’s historic Chinatowns on a new scale.
