IF YOU HAVE Appreciated stocks
Donating stocks is a simple way to benefit both you and your Museum. A gift of appreciated securities allows you to deduct the gift as a charitable donation and may help you avoid capital gains tax at the time of the transfer. If you would like to make a gift of stock, please fill out this form and we will contact you with transfer information to provide to your broker.
IF YOU HAVE A DONOR ADVISED FUND
Donor Advised Funds are the fastest growing form of philanthropy. A gift from you DAF makes it easy to support the Museum and all of the non-profits you care about. Did you know that you can also name the Museum as a beneficiary of your DAF? Consider supporting the future of the Museum by naming us as beneficiary of all or part of your remaining DAF funds at the end of your lifetime.
IF YOU HAVE A TRADITIONAL IRA
Make Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) to the Anchorage Museum Association.
At age 70 ½ you become eligible to make Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) from your IRA. A QCD is a direct transfer of funds from your IRA to a qualified charity, such as the Museum. Beginning at age 72, a QCD counts toward your annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). Making a gift through a QCD to the Museum helps you lower your taxable income while supporting the art and culture of the North you love. Learn more here.
You can also leave your IRA to the Museum. Naming the Museum as a beneficiary of your IRA will help ensure the future of our operations and could spare your heirs a significant tax bill. Learn more here.
