Planned Giving and Museum Endowment
Planned Giving is a philanthropic gift that is funded either during your lifetime or after your death. The gift is part of a larger estate-planning process in which you decide how certain assets are distributed.
Legacy gifts are invaluable to the Museum in order to grow, remain viable, and address the changing needs of the community it serves. Gifts from our most committed supporters will continue this work well into the twenty-first century and beyond.
There are many financial instruments available and an estate planner can help you achieve your long-term financial goals. By including the Museum in your long-term plans, you can achieve the goals that are important to you - to benefit yourself, your family, and an institution that you value and believe in.

Museum's Endowment Fund
In up and down economies, and for well over seventy-five years, our doors have remained open. The Augusta Museum of History's Endowment Fund, in part, is what makes that possible. Your gift to the Endowment Fund is self-perpetuating, which means that a small percentage of the endowment's yearly interest is available for spending each year, with the principal being invested in a range of securities, bonds and other financial instruments that are selected to ensure the continued growth of the endowment.
Our goal is to significantly increase the endowment's corpus so that additional resources are available to support the Museum's mission to collect and preserve, to interpret and educate, and to exhibit at the Museum or through the Museum's website.
You can make a donation to the endowment through PayPal below, or by designating your donation to the endowment via check or credit card.
