nvest with your donation.

As a private 501(C)(3) organization, Carolina Museum of the Marine and Al Gray Civic Institute relies solely on ongoing donations for all operating costs.

We continue to raise funds to operate and oversee construction and, when the Museum and Institute are open, to provide operating support for its facilities and programs.

The State of North Carolina is providing $26M dollars in its current biennium budget for construction of the facilities and creation and installation of exhibits and artifacts.
