Ask Your Employer to Match Your Gift

Does your employer match the charitable gifts made by their employees? If so, you may be able to double the impact of your gift! Check with your Human Resources department for information on your company’s matching gifts program.

Make an In-Kind Gift

Did you know you that you may be able to donate your professional services and/or certain tangible goods to the Mid-Hudson Discovery Museum? Professional services such as financial consulting or graphic design, and tangible goods such as lumber or landscaping materials are all valuable contributions for which tax credit can be given, provided it is something the museum would otherwise need to purchase.

Make a gift of appreciated stocks or bonds

By giving stocks or bonds valued above their original cost, you avoid the tax on capitals gains that would be incurred if you sold the securities. We encourage you to contact your personal tax advisor to discuss the benefits of gifting appreciated securities.
