A Tax-Saving Way to Help

At The Mariners’ Museum and Park we believe in the power of our community—locally and around the world—to come together to make a positive impact in the lives of the children and adults that access our world-class collection in person and online. Our work is only possible with support and commitment from our community.

There are many ways to support The Mariners’ Museum and Park’s mission to connect people to the world’s waters and to one another!

Charitable IRA Rollover

If you are 70½ years old or older and own an individual retirement account (IRA), you must take a required minimum distribution (RMD). You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to The Mariners’ Museum and Park without having to pay income taxes on the money. Transfers must be made directly from a traditional IRA account by your IRA administrator to The Mariners’ Museum and Park. Contact your IRA administrator and notify us when you direct the rollover to the Museum so we can look for the check from your IRA administrator.

Please contact Luisa Vázquez-López at lvazquez@MarinersMuseum.org or (757) 591-7705 if you have any questions.

Electronically Transferred Gifts of Securities
