Donations to the Annual Fund are immediately put to use in those areas where the National Liberty Museum has the greatest need. Your gift will help the NLM:
The NLM is a 501(C)(3) non-profit, and your donation is tax-deductible.
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 x116.

Call us at 215-925-2800 x116 for more information.
