Ways To Give

Cash Gifts and Pledges
Cash gifts and multi-year cash pledges are the most common forms of making major gifts. The payment period for cash pledges is usually five years or less to ensure applicable eligible matching funds.

Giving appreciated stock in publicly traded companies provides donors with attractive tax benefits. Donors can deduct the full fair market value of all appreciated securities held long-term, thus avoiding any capital gains tax that would have to be paid if the stock were sold.

Gifts of Equipment
Gifts of equipment and other tangible property generally qualify for charitable contribution deductions at their full market value.

Planned Gifts
Charitable gifts as part of an estate or retirement assets may be transferred in trust to HistoryMiami in return for income for life. Donors receive immediate tax benefits and ultimately the museum receives the trust property.

In writing a will or living trust, donors can identify HistoryMiami as a beneficiary of an estate.

Matching Gifts
Many corporations have programs that match charitable contributions made by employees. An employee can double his or her contributions by taking advantage of an employer's matching gift program.  Please let us know if your employer has a matching gift program.
