Vehicle Donations & Loans
The vehicle donation or loan process typically begins with a review of photographs supplied by the donor, and then progresses through an on-site inspection, appraisal and the arrangement of transportation. The museum’s staff will work with donors during the entire process to ensure a seamless transaction. Furthermore, as an automotive museum, donors are typically permitted to deduct the full fair market value of the vehicle being donated. This is no longer true when donating a vehicle to a general charitable vehicle donation program, where you are now limited to deducting the resale value only.
Artifact & Memorabilia Donations
The New England Auto Museum accepts small artifacts (e.g. driving suits, car models, etc.) and pieces of automotive memorabilia (e.g. car badges, meet posters, etc.) on a case-by-case basis. Contact us to see if the museum would be interested in your piece of automotive history.
