We can't thank all of the incredible volunteers, donors, and of course, the shoppers, enough for helping make this milestone a reality. Over the past 59 years, the Oakland Museum Women's Board has contributed over $22 million to the Oakland Museum of California. Annual contributions from the Women's Board support OMCA acquisitions, exhibitions, educational programs, and capital improvements.
