How You Can Help Support the Quartermaster Museum
The Army Quartermaster Foundation continues the work it began in 1957 to preserve the Quartermaster Story and teach its history, heritage and legacy to the present and future generations of Quartermaster Soldiers, Department of the Army civilians, Fort Lee and surrounding communities and visitors from around the nation and the world.
While the Museum receives some support from the Department of the Army and the Fort Lee command, those funds go toward a basic level of sustainment only. It does not allow for new initiatives such as acquiring artifacts, upgrading exhibits, expanding the facility, or initiating new programs. It is only through your generosity that the Quartermaster Museum will continue to grow and thrive for generations to come. We rely on your direct support to preserve and enhance our Quartermaster Soldiers’ legacy.

Your contributions to the Foundation are deductible from federal income taxes under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations of any size are welcome and appreciated. Please donate today to say Thank You to our Soldiers – past, present, and future.

Income from IRAs or other retirement accounts other than a Roth IRA is taxable in the year it is distributed. You can make a Qualified Charitable Contribution to a 501c(3) charity as part of or all of your required minimum distribution. This donation is not taxable and is in addition to your regular standard deduction for that tax year. The check is made directly from your financial institution to the charity and must be made prior to December 31st in order to receive the benefit of the donation in that tax year. Your financial institution will help you decide if this would be a beneficial way to support the Army Quartermaster Foundation.
If given the chance, most of us would like to contribute to a cause that will benefit the lives of others for generations. A planned gift is a way to achieve this and to create a legacy for you that lasts beyond your lifetime.
A planned gift brings your thoughtful planning, vision, and generosity together in the form of a bequest. By designating the Army Quartermaster Foundation as a beneficiary in your will or trust, you will play a significant role in ensuring our Foundation is able to support the legacy and history of the Quartermaster Corps through our financial support of the Quartermaster Museum.

Your donation to the Army Quartermaster Foundation may be doubled if your employer has a matching gift program that matches charitable contributions made by their employees (and in some cases retirees and/or spouses). Check with your employer’s Human Resource Office to see if they offer this opportunity. If they do, request the appropriate form, and send it completed and signed with your donation. We will take it from there.
