Support the Museum

Over the last ten years, a dedicated group of volunteers have been working to establish the first museum dedicated to Hip Hop culture in the place where it all began almost a half century ago: The Bronx, New York. With support from the borough of the Bronx and the city of New York, this vision is now a reality. 

You can be a part of it all, ensuring that the Official Record of Hip Hop is written and shared by its creators, and committed to our principles of equity, community empowerment, respect, and social justice. 

There are several ways to get involved and be part of the journey. Besides participating in and attending our events, you can contribute.

Time 2 Build

Time 2 Build is the capital campaign for the Universal Hip Hop Museum. Donors around the world are stepping up, and together we will achieve our goal of creating an interactive, global institution dedicated to Hip Hop Culture. We owe it to the generations to come, to the Hip Hop community, and to the Hip Hop Legends who have brought 5 Elements together into one culture for fifty years.

The Universal Hip Hop Museum is a registered 501(c)(3), and can accept your tax-deductible donation through a number of methods.

There are many ways to support the Time 2 Build campaign; every gift, donated item, and volunteer hour will make it happen.

Online: use your credit or debit card.
