Other Ways to Give

The NLM is grateful to our generous donors who have enabled us to impact more than 800,000 visitors and program participants in our first 16 years. Your charitable contribution is directly applied to our community and education programs and makes it possible for us to give access to children and families from all walks of life. It feels great to give like a hero.

Gifts of Stock
Gifts of appreciated securities, such as stocks and mutual funds, are an excellent way to philanthropically support the National Liberty Museum. These gifts provide a greater tax benefit than an equivalent gift in cash. For questions and information about how to donate securities, please contact our Development team at 215-925-2800 x140.

Matching Gifts
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs through which they match their employees’ contributions to non-profit organizations. Check with your Human Resources Department to see if your company will match your gift, or ask us and we’ll find out for you. Mail us a completed matching gift form, and we’ll take care of the rest. Call us at 215-925-2800 x140 for more information.

Planned Giving
As you weigh your estate planning options, please consider including the National Liberty Museum. Whether in the form of a bequest, gift of life insurance or retirement plan, charitable remainder trust, or other planned giving option, you can contribute to a bright future for the NLM and give future generations access to our programs. Planned gifts are also eligible for an estate tax charitable deduction equal to the entire amount of the bequest. To discuss planned giving opportunities, call us at 215-925-2800 x140.

Philadelphia’s Freedom Exhibition Call to Artists

When the National Liberty Museum opened its doors twenty years ago just a block away from Independence Hall, it took on the mission to reinforce the basic principles for safeguarding liberty, including heroism, empathy, and the appreciation of diversity. For our upcoming exhibition, Philadelphia's Freedom, the National Liberty Museum invites artists from the City of Brotherly & Sisterly Love to submit artwork based on your own unique interpretation of freedom.

Philadelphia's Freedom will debut in the NLM's Live Like a Hero Gallery in the Summer/Fall of 2020. The deadline to apply is May 17.

Giveback Workshops

On the first Saturday of each month from 10:30-noon, the NLM partners with a selected mission-driven nonprofit to give parents and children the opportunity to work together to complete a “make-and-donate” activity for an important cause. This event is included with general admission, but registration is encouraged.
