Other Ways to Give
Gift of Securities
Gifts of assets, rather than cash, can be made to The American Civil War Museum and prove tax-wise to you. Giving appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds can provide special tax advantages, including avoidance of capital gains tax and, in most instances, a charitable deduction for the full fair market value. Discuss the advantages with a gift of securities with your tax advisor.

Donating an Artifact
The reason we have the rich collection of military and civilian artifacts is due to donations over the last 120 years, most from Civil War veterans and/or their immediate family members. If you want to be part of that legacy by donating an item to the American Civil War Museum, please contact our collections department at [email protected].
