Tangible Personal Property:

Other property such as photographs, uniforms, aircraft, and artwork are also welcomed by the Museum during your lifetime or by bequest.

An endowment to the Yankee Air Museum is a fund that you establish to provide support to the Museum in perpetuity. A percentage of the earnings from the fund is distributed to the Museum annually, allowing us to pursue ongoing educational programs while the fund keeps growing. It may be created with cash gifts, pledges, and/or appreciated stock or property. Gifts can be made during your lifetime or through your estate and funds may be added at any time.

You may create your own named endowment, to honor anyone you choose, or add to one that has already been established. Establishing a named endowment provides a way for family and friends to support the Museum at the same time they honor the person for whom the endowment is named. Named endowments may be restricted, established for academic fellowships or chairs, and/or specific acquisitions to the collection; or unrestricted, which allows the Museum to use the funds wherever the need is the greatest.

Endowment funds are crucial to the long-term financial health of the Museum. They provide a reliable income source that allows the Museum to acquire new collections, explore new initiatives, and support specific programs in perpetuity.

Securities, Stock, Bonds, and Mutual Fund Shares:

A gift of securities owned more than one year can often be the most attractive and financially beneficial way to support the Museum. A charitable deduction may be taken for a portion of the donor’s adjusted gross income, using the fair market value of the stock on the gift date. Donors generally do not incur any capital gains tax when they donate appreciated securities. In addition to stock, you may donate bonds and mutual fund shares to the Museum.

If you have questions about a donation, please email
If you are planning a donation of securities, stock, bonds or mutual fund shares, please notify us, prior to making the gift.
