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.

Donating an Artifact

The reason we have a 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 get in touch with our collections department at rhancock@acwm.org.
