Contributions to Annual Giving are an important source of support and help to underwrite budgeted expenses that make our programs possible. Making a contribution to Annual Giving is an easy way to have an immediate impact on the Brandywine programs and initiatives that are important to you!
A tribute gift is a wonderful way to acknowledge a special occasion in someone’s life or the memory of a loved one while also supporting the work of the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art.
Once we have received your fully tax-deductible gift, a letter will be sent to the honoree or their loved ones to let them know of your generosity (we never reveal the amount of the contribution). Tribute gifts are also recognized in our quarterly membership newsletter, Brandywine Catalyst.
Making a donation to the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art takes only a few seconds…write a check, fill out a form, and address the envelope. But, with only a few seconds more, you could double or even triple your contribution! How? By filling out a matching gift form from your company and including it with your gift!
Many employers will match contributions to the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art made by employees and spouses, even if retired. That means you can double or even triple your donation. With approximately 50% of the Fortune 500 companies and over 15,000 corporations nationwide offering a matching gift program, corporate matching gifts is an ideal and growing source of revenue for our museum and environmental programs. And they give you the satisfaction of knowing that your company supports the same cause you do.
Please check to see if your company has a matching gift program. Some companies even match retiree’s or spouse’s gifts or make donations in honor of employees who donate a specified number of volunteer hours to an organization. More than 4,300 companies and subsidiaries match volunteer time.
Two simple steps to increase your support!
1. Obtain an Employee Matching Gift Form from your employer.
2. Mail to:
