Gifts of Securities

The Museum also accepts gift of securities; including, but not limited to stocks, mutual funds, bonds, and employee stock options. A gift of publicly traded securities means you eliminate the capital gains tax that you would have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds. Plus, you would also receive a tax receipt for 100% of your donation.

To donate securities, please consult your financial advisor for the relevant forms and to discuss which investments make the most financial and philanthropic impact, then let us know so we can show our appreciation!

Leave a Gift in your Will
