Private support is crucial to the vitality of MNHS, and the North Star Circle, the Minnesota Historical Society’s leadership giving club, provides the foundation of this support — nearly a million dollars annually. North Star Circle members each contribute at least $1,200 annually to MNHS general operations, and their leadership and generosity help make MNHS one of the largest and most respected organizations of our kind in the country.
North Star Circle members help MNHS expand its efforts to preserve Minnesota’s past, share its powerful stories, and connect people with history.
