Who's Who at the Fairgrounds: Heroes Hall Museum vs. Heroes Hall Veterans Foundation
Heroes Hall Museum (Museum) is owned and operated by the 32nd District Agricultural Association (32nd DAA) which is the state agency owning and operating the OC Fairgrounds. The Museum was built by the state with the state providing most of the funding. Most of the funding for operations, outreach, and other needs comes from the state. The Public can make a donation directly to the Museum of money or historical items, but the donation is not tax deductible. Volunteer opportunities are available by contacting Museum staff.
Heroes Hall Veterans Foundation (Foundation) is a private organization which has a contractual relationship with the 32nd DAA. The Foundation does not own or operate the Museum or provide the majority of Museum operating funds. The Foundation raises money which may be used for a variety of purposes and is not required to give all money raised to the Museum.
