Advocacy

The American Alliance of Museums works to unite the country’s museums from art museums to zoos. The Alliance helps museums tell our story and promotes a deeper understanding of museums with policymakers, the press and the public.

During the August recess, members of Congress will be looking for ways to connect with constituents like you. The Alliance provides all the tools you need.

House Passes IRA Charitable Rollover Bill; Good News on NEA and NEH Funding

On July 17, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 4719, legislation that would permanently reinstate three charitable giving tax incentives, including the IRA Charitable Rollover provision. The bipartisan vote follows an open letter from over 850 nonprofit organizations in support of these provisions, including more than 220 museums spanning 47 states! 

Our most recent Alliance Advocacy Alert also includes information on NEA and NEH funding restored during House Appropriations Committee consideration.
