Ways of Giving

The Smithsonian's Anacostia Community Museum counts on your support—now more than ever! While the Smithsonian Institution is funded only in part (60%) by the federal government, nearly half of ACM's exhibitions, research, public programs, outreach, and educational programs are funded through private support. Your gift is extremely important because it provides resources that will make an immediate impact and help sustain the museum's work.

These gifts can provide both financial and tax benefits, and may allow you to achieve much more with your donation than you thought possible.
