Ways to Give

There are many ways to donate to HumanitiesDC and support our efforts to preserve and promote the District’s unique culture and history.  You can show your support as an individual or corporate donor – every dollar donated goes to programs that record and archive our community’s history and builds opportunities for future generations.

Gifts of Other Assets
While a cash donation is the easiest way to support HumanitiesDC, giving assets such as stocks, bonds or property can provide you with a charitable deduction and may also offer additional tax savings. If you are interested in donating stock or securities, please contact us at (202) 747-6470.

Leave a Legacy
Include HumanitiesDC in your will or trust. Your retirement accounts, life insurance policies, or savings and investment accounts are very likely a significant portion of your net worth. Due to special tax considerations, they could make an excellent choice for funding a charitable gift. For advice on planned giving and the associated tax benefits, please consult a professional advisor.
