Donate

Although our doors are closed, we continue to engage people in our city’s built spaces, its history, and its stories. Visit our homepage to find online exhibits, activities, videos, forums, and more!

But to continue our work, we need your support. Since the programs we offer at this time are free to everyone, donations from supporters like you are what keep this work going.

Please note that the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act includes an above-the-line deduction (universal or non-itemizer deduction that applies to all taxpayers) for total charitable contributions of up to $300 made in 2020. Please consult with your advisor for more information about this opportunity to support the AHC.

Become a monthly giver

Monthly Giving through your checking account offers a convenient and effective way to support the mission and work of the AHC throughout the year. Just select “Make this a recurring donation deducted” on the donation page.

Build the AHC’s legacy today through your IRA

If you’re 70½ years old or older, there’s a simple way to support the AHC and receive significant tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to the AHC without paying income taxes on the donation. 

Have your employer match your gift

Not only is it an easy and effective way to double the amount of your donation, but it also maximizes the impact your gift can have in supporting preservation in our community. When considering a donation to the AHC, please check with your employer to see if they offer a matching gift program. Just fill out the Matching Gifts section on the donation page.

Share your shares

Meet your charitable goals and save money by donating stocks to the AHC. A gift of stock or mutual funds before December 31st could be a great way to maximize tax savings and meet your charitable giving goals for the year.

Include the AHC in your estate planning

You can make a difference for decades through estate planning. Any meaningful gift that has the ability to affect lasting change requires careful consideration and planning. Our donors entrust us with the resources we need to realize our mission. In turn, we want to inform our donors about the range of effective, tax-efficient methods to meet their charitable giving goals. LEARN MORE ABOUT ESTATE PLANNING>>
