    One of the most common ways to make a gift to The National WWII Museum is to write a check, make a gift using a credit card, or donate online.

    Stocks & Bonds

    Giving appreciated stock that you have owned for more than one year is one of the most tax-advantaged ways to make charitable gifts. With careful planning, you can reduce your capital gains tax while supporting The National WWII Museum.

    Retirement Assets

    A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield you or your heirs from taxes while funding the Museum’s future.

    Life Insurance

    Life insurance is a valuable asset for making a charitable gift. You can make a gift of a life insurance policy without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.

    Real Estate

    A gift of real estate allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive tax and income advantages, and make a significant charitable gift to the Museum.

    Personal Property

    A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support the Museum.
