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.
Benefits can be a specified amount or a percentage of an estate. Your estate planner or trust manager will be able to answer any questions you may have about this form of giving.
Other Ways to Give
Donations of Artifacts, Photographs, and Archival Materials
The mission of the US Army Quartermaster Museum is to collect, preserve, and exhibit objects of interest to the history of the Quartermaster Corps. To accomplish this goal, the Museum acquires a wide variety of artifacts and historic materials for use in exhibits, as reference materials, and to assist in the conduct of original research on Quartermaster Corps history. The US Army Quartermaster Museum follows the ethical guidelines for acquiring artifacts established by the American Association of Museums (AAM).
Historic Artifacts: The Museum collects three-dimensional artifacts (for example: vehicles, uniforms, weapons, personal effects, etc.) in a selective and responsible manner. The Museum will accept only those items that the Museum can utilize and has the resources to professionally care for. If you have artifacts that you would like to donate to the Museum, please contact Luther Hanson, Curator, US Army Quartermaster Museum at: [email protected].
Photographs and Archival Materials: Original documents are crucial to the mission of the Museum. The museum curator and researchers utilize photographs, personal papers and correspondence, official records, log books, etc. as part of the research required to prepare new exhibits and to prepare new publications. Archival materials of this kind are housed in the Pieklik Research and Learning Center.
If you have any photographs, letters, official records, log books, etc., and wish to donate them to the Pieklik Research and Learning Center, please contact Correy Twilley, Curator, US Army Quartermaster Museum at: [email protected].
Please do not bring any artifacts, photographs, or other archival materials to the museum without first speaking with a Museum representative. The US Army Quartermaster Museum will NOT be responsible for any items left at the Museum without prior approval of a Museum staff member.
