Ways To Give
Ways to give
Your philanthropic support of The Children's Museum can take many forms, from outright gifts of cash or appreciated securities to gifts of real or personal property through your estate. Gifts may be made in support of the museum's annual operating campaign, the Children's Museum Fund, or in support of a specific capital or endowment priority.
The museum is delighted to be among the charitable organizations you are considering supporting and is eager to work with you to identify a gift plan that will best meet your philanthropic and other planning priorities.
Contributing Memberships offer all the savings and benefits of a Classic Membership plus a tax-deductible gift to the Children’s Museum Fund to help fund world-class exhibits, hold down the true cost of admission and membership, and offer reduced admission to underserved families.
Outright gifts may be made in the form of cash, appreciated securities, or other forms of real or personal property.
You can also make your gift to the museum through a multiyear pledge payable over a period not exceeding five years. Gifts for capital or endowment purposes may be made in this way and combined with gifts to the Children's Museum Fund.
Gifts of Real Estate or Tangible Personal Property
Many donors find that gifts of real estate or tangible personal property best advance their larger philanthropic planning goals. These gifts are valued at the appraised market value on the date the property is transferred.
Bequests, Charitable Trusts, and Other Planned Gift Techniques
Gifts to The Children's Museum may be made through a will, charitable trust, life insurance policy, or beneficiary designation in a retirement plan. Estate commitments such as these provide donors the opportunity to make significant charitable contributions to the museum while taking advantage of current tax incentives and meeting future needs of their families.
Corporate gifts also support the museum's annual fund. Gifts can be made at the Corporate Friend Level ($100-$999), the Corporate Alliance Level ($1,000-$4,999), and the Executive Council ($5,000+) Level.
