Museum frequently asked questions

Will I receive recognition for my gift?

At the completion of the campaign, all donors will be recognized in a suitable manner for their generous gifts.

Is my gift tax deductible?

A donation to the BCCM is fully tax-deductible. Multiple year pledges are tax deductible for each year that payments are made.

Can I make a gift of stock or property?

Some donors may prefer to make a gift of appreciated stock or property. The tax deduction for a gift of stock is determined by the value of the stock on the date the transfer occurs. The donor does not have to pay tax on the capital gain and may deduct up to 30% of their adjusted gross income, with a five-year carry over for any unused deduction. All donors are encouraged to consult with their financial advisor about gifts of this type.

How will the pledge be paid?

While a one-time payment is welcomed, a donation campaign pledge can extend over a five-year time frame. You select the payment option that best fits your situation: annual, semi-annual, or quarterly installments. Reminder notices will be sent for your convenience.
