Tax Information

The Montshire Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The value of membership benefits is not substantial so membership fees are fully tax-deductible as provided by law. Some donor benefits, including guest admission passes, have a substantial value and reduce the tax-deductible amount of your gift. Refer to your gift acknowledgement letter or read a detailed description of membership levels, benefits, and their impact on tax deductibility.

For more information, call the Montshire’s development office at 802-649-2200, x225.

If you are age 70 1/2 or older, you can make a direct transfer from your IRA to the Montshire and other charitable organizations without being subject to federal income tax. These withdrawals count toward your minimum distribution requirements for the year of the gift. Contact your IRA administrator to arrange a direct transfer.

We encourage you to speak with your financial advisors about the specifics of your situation. While we would be delighted to hear from you and to discuss your goals, the Montshire cannot provide tax, legal, or accounting advice.
