Donations to the S’edav Va’aki Museum Foundation are tax deductible and go directly to the museum’s education programs, exhibits, collection care, or archaeology program. Donations ensure that the only public accessible Hohokam Platform sites in the City of Phoenix continue to provide opportunities for education and cultural awareness to all its visitors.


Donations are used for:

  • Educational Programs: To teach both adults and children about the prehistoric, historic and present cultures of S’edav Va’aki and the Salt River Valley.
  • Exhibits: To update and maintain our current exhibits both inside and out and bring in new exhibits.
  • Collections: For the care and preservation of the existing collection and to obtain new pieces for our collections and to keep our research library updated.
