Recurring Giving

Your love for the Stuhr Museum is inherent. And, now your support can be just as automatic. Setting up a recurring gift is convenient, customizable, and most importantly, provides the Stuhr Museum Foundation with a steady source of support for the Stuhr Museum's preservation efforts, educational programming, and maintenance of the 208 acres of grounds and 108 historic buildings. 

Recurring gifts are an easy way to make a big impact that works for your budget and schedule. Set your monthly giving amount (a minimum of $10) through our secure Donate page and your gift will automatically be deducted from your credit card on the anniversary date of your original gift - a gift made on the 15th will be charged to your card monthly. At the end of the year, you will receive an annual tax receipt summarizing your gifts. 

The cumulative total of your monthly gifts each year will determine your Patron Membership level. You can choose to cancel your recurring gift at any time by contacting the Foundation office at (308) 385-5131 or foundation@stuhrmuseum.org. We do ask that you please give us 30-days notice to allow for processing of the cancellation. 

Please feel free to contact the Foundation if you have any questions regarding recurring gifts. 


Gifts of Stock, Commodities, and Property

A charitable donation can include gifts of closely held stock, securities, or commodities. Farmers and ranchers can save significant taxes by contributing commodities such as corn and cattle to the Stuhr Museum Foundation instead of making a cash contribution after selling the commodity. Donors should consult with his or her tax advisor to determine whether a contribution of commodities is appropriate to their tax situation.
