Tribute & Memorial Gifts
Honor a special person with a tax-deductible gift made to Genesee Country Village & Museum. It is a meaningful way to mark a special occasion or remember a beloved family member, friend, or respected colleague. Simply put the person’s name in the “honoree” field when giving online, on the memo line of your personal check, or give our staff a call.
Many companies offer matching gift programs that match their employees’ charitable contributions dollar for dollar. Ask your employer about matching your gift today and double your impact at GCV&M!
Planned Giving & IRA Gifts
There are many ways to build a legacy at GCV&M. As a not-for-profit organization, the Museum can accept required minimum distributions from individual retirement accounts. And when you make a bequest to our Museum, you become a member of our Flint Hill Heritage Society – a group of legacy givers committed to making a transformative impact on our future.
Gifts of Stock
Gifts of appreciated securities, stocks, and mutual funds are another way to maximize the effectiveness of your charitable giving. Ask your tax advisor about the benefits of transferring ownership of these assets to GCV&M.
“In-kind giving” refers to contributions of goods and services that are of value to a nonprofit organization. Businesses do it, corporations do it, and so do individual donors. GCV&M is very fortunate to receive in-kind support from a wide variety of donors. This generous support makes a significant impact on the Museum’s ability to meet its mission. Do you have and item or expertise you think might be helpful to GCV&M? Let us know.
