Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Celebrate an anniversary, birthday, or establish a memorial for a loved one positively impacted by the power of music. This lasting tribute is accompanied by a special note honoring your loved one and provides a unique and thoughtful gift while supporting MIM’s mission.



Stock and Appreciated Securities

Transfer your stocks, bonds, or mutual funds to MIM.


  • An immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer.
  • You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold.
  • Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The “cost” of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it.

How It Works:

  • Contact your broker or investment account holder about a transfer or change of beneficiary designation form for mutual funds or other types of investment accounts.
  • You can designate the Musical Instrument Museum as receiving all or a percentage of the account assets.
  • Have stocks you would like to donate now? Fill out the Stock Notification Gift Form and email to advancement@MIM.org. If you prefer, email advancement@MIM.org or call 480.478.6062 for assistance. Once completed, please share these Stock Instructions with your bank or broker.

Retirement Plan, IRA Charitable Rollover or QCD

An IRA charitable rollover is a qualified charitable distribution from your retirement account.


  • Avoid potential double taxation (estate and income tax) on balance of retirement plans faced if designated to non-charitable beneficiaries.
  • When you designate MIM as the beneficiary for all or part of your qualified retirement plan, those assets pass to us tax free.
  • Continue to take regular lifetime withdrawals.

How It Works:

  • Designate the Musical Instrument Museum to receive all or a portion of the assets held in the retirement plan.
  • Tell MIM about your gift by submitting the Planned Gift Notification. Your plan administrator is not obligated to notify MIM. Please let us know so that we may properly recognize your contribution.

Donor-Advised Funds (DAF)

A donor-advised fund is like a charitable savings account where you transfer cash or other assets to a tax-exempt sponsoring organization. With your charitable goals in mind, seek the advice of your financial or legal advisor to find the right sponsoring organization to meet your needs and interests.

Setting up a donor-advised fund allows you to:

  • Have the flexibility to recommend, but not direct, how much and how often money is granted to MIM.
  • Receive a charitable tax deduction at the time you contribute to the account.
  • Avoid the cost and complexities of managing a private foundation.
