The American Alliance of Museums works to unite the country’s museums from art museums to zoos. Each year, approximately 850 million visitors pass through our hallways and absorb our important lessons about the past, present and future.
The Alliance helps museums tell our story and promotes a deeper understanding of museums with policymakers, the press and the public.
On November 20 several American Alliance of Museums members joined with advocates from 140 nonprofit organizations to make the case for preserving the deductibility of charitable gifts. A letter is currently being circulated in Congress by Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and John Thune (R-SD) urging the Senate Finance Committee to protect the charitable deduction.
Ask your Senators to join this letter by the Dec. 12 deadline.
