            Gifts and Donations

            POLICY ON GIFTS TO MUSEUM

                 A gift is a complete transfer of ownership without restriction from the  previous owner to the museum. As a matter of principle, the museum cannot  afford to limit the usefulness of a gift by agreeing to display them at  all times or to associate the name(s) of the donor publicly everytime the item is used. Long Term Loans are graciously refused. Temporary loans of two weeks or a month are often necessary, but it is important that  the owner be aware the he is to return to get his object immediately when  the exhibit is dismantled.

            The museum collects two kinds of objects:

            • a) Items that have aesthetic, historic or scientific importance.
              (These should be fully documented as to their history or their value  for scholars or students)
            • b) items that have future educational  usefulness... typical commonplace objects that have to be stored until  the time that they are called upon to fill out an exhibit to demonstrate  physical characteristics or processes. These too must be identified and documented.

            Charitable giving:

                 If you are interested in giving a gift of stocks, bonds or mutual funds to Alton Museum of History & Art, Inc., contact官方app彩票下载安装 at 618-462-2763 or altonmuseum@官方app彩票下载安装gmail.com.

                 Yes, Alton Museum of History & Art, Inc. accepts cash donations as well as gifts of stocks, bonds or mutual funds. By giving a gift of stocks, bonds or mutual funds, you are parting with dominion and control of the stock to Alton Museum of History & Art, Inc. thus eliminating the capital gains taxes you would have owed if you sold it.

                 A stock is said to be highly appreciated if it is valued at a higher rate now than when you originally purchased it. By giving a gift of stock to Alton Museum of History & Art, Inc., you generally receive a full deduction of the entire value of the asset, while avoiding the capital gains tax which would have been due had you sold it.
