Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)
AAM welcomes DAF contributions. Request a grant distribution through your DAF sponsor. Be sure to reference your name and indicate whether your gift is unrestricted or designated to a specific fund. To direct your gift, please use the mail or wire transfer options above. If additional information is required, please contact the development department. We encourage you to speak with your tax advisor regarding any questions.
Gifts of Marketable Securities
You may make gifts using publicly traded securities which have appreciated in value. You will be able to claim a charitable deduction for the full market value of the securities on the date the gift is made. It is important that you or your broker notify the development department of your gift and that your broker reference your name in the DTC transfer instructions.
Electronic stock transfer via DTC
Account Name: American Association of Museums

Please contact the Kaufman & Kast brokerage team at Merrill Lynch (202-434-4706) and provide them with the donor’s name, address, name of security, number of shares, and gift purpose.
Please contact the development department if you wish to make a pledge. To count towards the current fiscal year, all pledges must be paid by December 31.
Matching gift benefits can double, sometimes triple, the impact of your gift. Ask your employer if they offer matching gifts, then request fulfillment instructions from your company’s human resources department. Be sure to notify the development department as well, forward any confirmation receipts you receive, and we’ll keep an eye out for it.
