Other Ways to Give


Endowed Gifts

Endowed gifts are both a gift for the future and a gift for today, supporting the Archives in perpetuity and providing the donor with long-term recognition and tax benefits.

Planned Gifts

Planned gifts allow the donor to leave an important legacy while also receiving tax benefits and income for life. Those who include the Smithsonian in their estate plans and notify us are eligible for membership in the Smithsonian Legacy Society.

Please contact the Office of Advancement at 202-633-7265 to discuss endowment and planned giving opportunities.
