Gift Acceptance Policies

The Alliance has compiled this set of gift acceptance policy resources from throughout the nonprofit and museum sector.

Gift Acceptance Policies

The National Council of Nonprofits resources on gift acceptance policies covers managing expectations and includes pointers on how to develop the best policies for your museum.

Gifts, Donations, Grants and Endowments

Several colleges and universities make their gift acceptance policies available online. Museums may find it useful to review these to identify issues that they want to include in their own policies. For example, see the policy from Texas A & M University (PDF, 4 pages).
