We cannot fulfill our commitment to bring you Brooklyn’s history without your support. Right now, your donation will go even further to help BHS. We have received a challenge grant from a generous Trustee who will match, dollar-for-dollar, all gifts that we receive. Donate now.
Gifts to the annual fund are outright, 100% tax-deductible donations that are used solely for the support of day-to-day operations of the Museum and Library.
As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, BHS is eligible for many employers’ corporate matching gifts programs. Obtain a matching gift form from your Human Resources Department and return it to BHS. Your donation is completely tax-deductible.
Appreciated Securities/Real Estate
Outright, irrevocable gifts of real property are eligible for charitable income tax deductions equal to the full market value of the property. Gifts of appreciated securities help to avoid the capital gains tax. In most cases, the donor may make a deduction based on the full market value of the property held for at least one year.
