Approximately sixty percent of the Museum's annual operating budget is provided by the Glass-Glen Burnie Foundation. The Museum Giving Circle Program, Membership program, annual giving campaign, site rentals, admissions, and Museum Store Sales comprise the remaining portion.
Tax-deductible contributions are vital to the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley. The depth of the museum’s programming is directly proportional to that of our donors' support.
You can support the Museum's mission to preserve and enrich the cultural life and heritage of the Valley with:
- Annual Cash Gifts
- Gifts of Securities
- MSV Giving Circles and the Compass Society Donors who contribute $500 or more become part of a Giving Circle and receive a VIP Donor Card that allows access to the MSV without jeopardizing the tax deductibility of the gift. Learn more about the Museum’s seven Giving Circles
and the privileges afforded for joining these circles.
- Estate Gifts
For longer term gifts such as bequests, charitable gift
annuities, and other sources of planned giving, please
contact the Development Office.
