Ways to Give

Outright Gifts

Contributions may be paid by cash, check, or credit card. Checks should be made payable to the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis.

Give Now


Pledges enable you to plan a personal giving program that is both convenient and tax-wise. A pledge may allow you to consider a more significant gift than would have otherwise been possible. Pledges to Create: The CAMpaign are payable over five years.

Publicly Traded Securities

Securities may be made as outright gifts or as a payment on a pledge. The mean market value on the date of the transfer will determine the value of the gift for tax purposes. Gifts of appreciated securities may be tax deductible for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income.

Gifts of Other Assets

Gifts to CAM can come in the form of other assets as well. For example, you may wish to consider gifts of closely held stock, tangible personal property (jewelry, art, antiques, equipment, etc.), or real estate. All gifts of tangible personal property with a substantial value must be saleable and the donor must agree the property can be sold.

Planned Giving

Planned Giving allows for a variety of opportunities to support the mission of the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis long into the future. These tax-deductible donations may take the form of pledges, donations of securities, IRA charitable rollovers, tangible personal property and real estate, as well as bequests and other types of planned giving, adding your legacy to the future of CAM. Planned gifts provide an opportunity to structure long-term deferred gifts in ways that are beneficial both to you and to CAM.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. CAM is honored to accept matching gifts.
