Outright Gift or Bargain Sale
Turn Your Treasures Into a Charitable Legacy
The Huntington gratefully accepts gifts of tangible personal property such as art, rare, books, and manuscripts. These gifts must be approved in advance by a member of our curatorial staff—please contact us today to determine if The Huntington is the right place for your personal property gift.
Ways to Use Property as a Donation
An outright gift. This allows you to benefit our work today and receive a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize.
A gift in your will or living trust. You can leave a legacy at The Huntington by donating property to us through your will or living trust.
A bargain sale. You can sell us your property for less than the fair market value of the item. For example, if you sell us an antique for $25,000 that is worth $50,000, you will receive a federal income tax charitable deduction of $25,000 plus the payment from us of $25,000.
A memorial or tribute gift. If you have a friend or family member whose life has been touched by The Huntington, consider making a gift to us in his or her name.
