MAKE YOUR GIFT GO FARTHER...

Contact your employer about their charitable giving policy, which may include matching the charitable contributions of current and retired employees. Matching Donations can range from a percentage of your gift to more than double the amount of your donation! Donations matched by your employer are also applied to your account and may advance you to a higher level of benefits and access. All you have to do is fill out a short form that your employer will supply, sign and send it to the Museum, either with your donation or afterwards, and we will do the rest.
