Your donation gives the gift that will expand the Museum’s impact on children in the community. Our donors help us maintain and grow our early childhood education services and programming in southeastern North Carolina. Together we are helping children learn and grow. Learn more about the ways you can help below.

Gift of Stock
Gifting stock is a benefit for both donor and the Museum. You can deduct the full current value of the stock and the Museum can sell the stock with no capital gains taxes. In short, you can make a larger gift at a lower cost. 

Give from your IRA 
Make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from an IRA and receive a tax break if you meet the IRS guidelines reducing your taxable income. If you are subject to a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), an IRA gift is an easy way to support the Museum and fulfill those requirements. 

Legacy Gifts
Foster the future with a legacy gift by naming the Museum as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy, in your will, trust or general estate plans. Make an impact that lasts for generations to come.
