There are more than 320,000 students attending public school in Orange, Seminole and Osceola Counties. Each year the Holocaust Center serves close to 20,000 students – about 16%. That’s good, but not good enough!

Please help reach the students and teachers who are not able to visit the Holocaust Center in person through a new and improved website. Holocaust education is every bit as important as math and science – but can you imagine the outcry if only 16% of students were taught the basics of those subjects?

All of our children need this knowledge, and we simply can’t reach everyone through field trips and classroom programs alone. We are currently hosting as many school visits as staff time and building space allow.

The only way to expand our reach today is to give people a chance to “visit” us online – viewing our exhibits, peeking into our archives, and learning the lessons that are so important for today.

Our website, created years ago, has a wealth of information, but we can do better. We need to do better. We’re asking you for a special gift to reach more students though an improved website. The Frances and Joseph Victor Fund at the Central Florida Foundation has generously offered to match half of the cost of a new website if we can raise the first $25,000. Your personal investment will be matched dollar for dollar!

Please make a contribution today so anyone who cannot visit us in person has an engaging and enriching experience online.

If you’d like more information about our plans for the new website, you can download a recent letter about this project here.
