To Life Annual Benefit 2025

Our largest donor event each year.
Please plan on joining us!

FEBRUARY 1, 2025
Details forthcoming

As one of Tampa Bay’s premier events, over 600 prominent community members and business leaders come together to support the Museum’s  mission. To Life has always been The Florida Holocaust Museum’s largest source of unrestricted operating funds, ensuring the delivery of our educational resources to teachers, students, and learners of all ages.


Our Mission




The Florida Holocaust Museum honors the memory of millions of innocent men, women and children who suffered or died in the Holocaust. The Museum is dedicated to teaching the members of all races and cultures the inherent worth and dignity of human life in order to prevent future genocides.

The Florida Holocaust Museum is a 501(C)(3) tax-exempt organization.





Impact of Your Sponsorship

Using the lessons of the Holocaust, The FHM encourages people to make a positive change in today’s world through the promotion of acceptance, inclusion, and diversity. This is accomplished through numerous programs, exhibitions, and events both inside and outside the Museum’s walls. The multifaceted programs, provided at no cost to participants, are offered throughout the Tampa Bay region, state of Florida, and the country.

Core programs

  • Speak Up/Speak Now®
  • Teaching Trunks
  • Genocide and Human Rights Awareness Movement Lecture Series
  • The Anne Frank Humanitarian Award
  • Law Enforcement and Society
  • Dimensions In Testimony(SM) from USC Shoah Foundation, featuring local survivors

Last year, antisemitic incidents reached an all-time high, fed by a rise in Holocaust denial and distortion. The mission of The Florida Holocaust Museum has never been more important and the need for Holocaust education never more critical. With your support, The FHM continues to speak out against hatred.

Together, we can fight antisemitism and other forms of hatred.
