Donation Information

Thank you for considering a gift to the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors.

Planned Gifts refer to gifts that are part of a donor’s estate plan. By far the most common form of planned giving is through a bequest placed in a donor’s will. Charitable Gift Annuities (CGAs) allow a donor to increase their income for life, receive tax advantages, and make a gift to support the NAWCC. Other kinds of planned gifts include irrevocable gifts that generate income during a donor’s lifetime, gifts of life insurance, or gifts of real estate. For more Information see the NAWCC Planned Giving website.

Gift of Securities
You can make a gift of stock in one of three ways:

1 - You can wire transfer the stock to our brokerage firm, Merrill Lynch via your broker. 
Two numbers you will need for the transfer are: Merrill Lynch DTC#5198 and NAWCC federal tax number 23-2072465. 

If you have any questions, please call Gretchen Read at Merrill Lynch at 1-866-656-2450 or 1-717-771-0022.

2 - You can request that your brokerage transfer ownership of your shares to NAWCC, and then sell the shares and mail a check to NAWCC.

3 - You can mail a signed stock certificate to NAWCC and in a separate envelope mail the stock power.

Endowments are gifts that are intended to provide a source of income to an institution or organization. The gift or principal is established as a separate fund or pooled with an existing endowment fund. Income generated from the fund is used to support the general objectives of an organization or a specific program or purpose. The NAWCC has endowment funds in place to support the work of the Museum and the Library and Research Center. Endowment funds are often established to memorialize or honor a donor and his/her family.

Among the displays in the Museum are numerous clocks, watches, equipment, and other materials that have been donated by individual members, or members of their family. These items form an integral part of the Museum’s collection and help make the Museum the superior facility that it is.
