Gifts That Reduce Your Taxes

Complimentary planning resources are just a click away!

You can enable the education of current and future generations about World War II while saving on taxes.

Great tax benefits exist for those who give in the following ways:

Gift of Cash:

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

Stocks & Bonds:

This is one of the easiest gifts to give and one of the most useful in accomplishing your philanthropic goals. The next time you visit your bank, you can name The National World War II Museum (Tax ID: 72-1200790) as the beneficiary of a checking or savings bank account, a certificate of deposit (CD), or a brokerage account. When you do, you’ll take a powerful step toward preserving the lessons learned, and freedoms won through WWII.

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.
