WAYS TO DONATE

Give and Get Involved. Supporting the Motown Legacy

There are many ways to support the Motown Museum, such as contributing to our Annual Fund, Planned Giving and Donating Artifacts. All donations support the Museum’s mission of preserving and presenting the history and cultural significance of the Motown Legacy.

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is designed to enhance and build on the quality and breadth of Museum offerings each year using unrestricted, completely tax-deductible donations. Annual Fund gifts are put to use immediately in areas where the need is the greatest.

Your gift to the Annual Fund is an investment in the Museum with a tradition of promoting excellence and access to the historic Motown legacy. With a gift of $25, $50, $100 or more you can help enrich the Museum by providing dollars for immediate needs, such as operating funds, conservation and new museum exhibits. As always, your support at any level is greatly appreciated.

Planned Giving

The Museum offers many planned giving opportunities, all of which can be tailored to meet your specific financial and estate-planning needs.

By remembering the Museum in your will, establishing a charitable gift annuity or charitable trust, or making the Museum a beneficiary of your IRA or Life Insurance Policy, you may create a lifetime stream of income for you and/or a member of your family, as well as enjoy a significant charitable income tax or estate tax deduction.

Donation of Artifacts

Motown Museum welcomes the donation of artifacts that might be used in current or future exhibits. Motown Museum seeks materials that will help share the tremendous legacy of Motown Record Company and we welcome the opportunity to speak with you about any artifacts you may wish to donate. The Museum does not purchase items and can not give appraisals or estimate the value of memorabilia.

Any questions related to tax deductions associated with donations should be discussed with your accountant or tax consultant. If you have items that you wish to donate or loan to the Museum, please feel free to send an email to the Curatorial Department with a detailed list and written description of the items. Photos are welcome and helpful.
