Ways to Give
Support Booth Western Art Museum and help us share America’s Story!
Make an immediate impact with your gift today to the Booth Museum. Your support makes it possible for the Booth to offer world-class and engaging temporary exhibitions, customized learning experiences for more than 20,000 students each year, and unique learning opportunities for art enthusiasts of all ages.
Virtual Field Trips
In response to the need and demand for virtual programming by school districts due to COVID-19, the Booth is converting our two most popular field trips, Westward Ho! and American Indians: Cultures and Contributions into a virtual experience. Your gift to the Virtual Field Trip Program is high-impact, making a meaningful difference to students and teachers across Georgia in a unique and memorable way. Your gift will help provide a memorable field trip experience to students that may not be able to attend due to COVID-19 traveling restrictions, cost of a traditional field trip or distance.
School Transportation Fund
“This was the best day ever!” At the Booth Museum, we hear this statement from many of the 20,000+ students that come through our doors each year for an educational field trip. The Booth brings the art and culture of the American West to life for students and teachers through social studies, language arts and visual arts connections, engaging children and fostering a future generation of art and museum patrons. Give today and create “best days” for even more students.
Gifts of Stock
A gift of appreciated securities – stocks, bonds or mutual funds – can provide significant tax benefits that reduce the net cost of your gift when compared with an equal gift of cash. Opportunities for sponsorships of Museum spaces, events or exhibits are available.
Charitable IRA Rollover
As a result of the permanent extension of the IRA charitable rollover, individuals age 70 ½ can make gifts directly from their IRA to charity. The distribution is not included in the donor’s adjusted gross income so there is generally no additional tax on a qualified distribution.
For many of us, there is a compelling need to make a difference – to leave a lasting impact on the people and organizations that mean the most to us. A bequest is the simplest way to make a difference for your charity and lessen the burden of taxes on your family and estate.
A bequest may be made in several ways:
- Gift a percentage of your estate or remainder after family or other heirs have been provided for
- Retirement assets, such as an IRA
- Gift of specific assets such as artwork or other personal property
- Charitable trust or charitable annuity
For more information on gifts of stock, charitable IRA rollovers or legacy gifts, please contact the Development Office at email@example.com or 770-387-1538.
