Support
the Museum

When you donate to the International African American Museum, you are helping to tell and retell the untold and under-told stories of the African American journey.

Honor the Stories. Honor Our History. Donate Today.

No matter what you decide to give, your donation will make a difference. Through your generosity, the IAAM will be able to act as a place of education and inspiration for visitors young and old, who will explore African and African American history and culture through innovative exhibitions, a sweeping African Ancestors Memorial Garden, genealogical research at the Center for Family History, community programs, and digital education offerings.

Your contribution is tax-deductible. EIN-20-3398254.

PLANNED GIVING OPPORTUNITIES

Your gift to the International African American Museum will amplify African American history and culture for generations to come.

  • A gift in your will continues your support of the museum’s important mission and allows you to make an even bigger impact than you ever thought possible! Whether you give a set amount or a percentage of your estate, your high-impact gift will empower the museum for years to come. You will also become a member of the Mary McLeod Bethune Legacy Society to recognize your commitment to the lasting impact of sharing the stories of the African American journey.

    SEE WHO HAS GIVEN THROUGH THEIR WILL

  • If you’re looking for a tax-smart way to share a gift with the museum, consider a gift of stock. When you give appreciated stock that you’ve owned for more than a year, you can avoid capital gains tax and receive a charitable income tax deduction when you itemize.

    LEARN MORE/GET TRANSFER INSTRUCTIONS

  • If you’re 70½ years old or order, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit the museum, and receive tax benefits in return! You can give any amount up to $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to the museum, without having to pay income taxes on the money. This gift option is known as qualified charitable distribution (QCD) and is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover.

    GIVE FROM YOUR IRA

  • Did you know that there are additional assets not covered in a standard will or trust? If you have an IRA, 401(k), life insurance policy, or any additional accounts, these are called “non- probate assets” and they need to be planned for separately. Using this online tool, you can log all of your assets, and name IAAM as a beneficiary if you like. You’ll receive printable instructions on how to set each one up with your broker.
