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 of a gift of securities with your tax advisor.

Corporations and Foundations
Support from corporations and foundations ensures the museum engages with the larger working community today and that our work continues. If you are a corporation looking to sponsor the museum’s work or a foundation who is interested in how the American Civil War Museum is changing the narrative then please get in touch.
Donating an Artifact
We have a rich collection of military and civilian artifacts due to donations over the last 120 years, mainly 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 get in touch with our collections department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
