Annual Fund

Make A Donation To The Rock Hall

The Museum is the premiere place in the world that preserves and presents the most powerful art form ever created, rock and roll. As we look back at how rock and roll has shaped our lives and our society, we also look to the future. To maintain and expand our award-winning education programs and our vibrant exhibits, we need support from fans around the world.  Donate to our Annual Fund online

Why Do We Need Your Help?

As a nonprofit organization, the Museum depends on annual support from individuals and corporations. The Annual Fund provides primary support for museum operations, ensuring one-of-a-kind exhibits, extraordinary educational and community programming, and an enhanced visitor experience.

We strive to deepen everyone’s understanding of rock and roll and its significant role in some of the most important social, cultural and political issues in modern history.

At our world-class museum, we:
•    Instruct 50,000 school children a year with innovative programs in music, language arts, social studies, science, and technology.
•    Educate visitors with world-class exhibits.
•    Preserve and document the history of rock and roll.
•    Honor those who have made the exceptional contributions to rock and roll music.

Your contribution helps to advance these activities and allows us to do so much more.

Without the help of our donors, members and friends, the Museum would not be able to document the history of rock and roll, educate thousands of school children, and connect generations. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.

Gifts of $500 or more will be recognized in our Annual Report and Donor Wall.

Gifts of $1,000 or more will be recognized within the Rock Hall’s Donor Circle or Corporate Donor Programs. To learn more about these programs, click here.

Types Of Tax-Deductible Contributions

Gifts of Appreciated Securities

A gift of appreciated securities is a very tax-effective way to support the Rock Hall. When you donate appreciated stocks to the Museum, you may reduce the capital gains tax liability compared to what you would pay on selling the asset. The income and capital gains tax savings make gifts of securities a popular alternative to cash. Please consult your financial advisor when considering a donation.

Matching Gifts

Many companies sponsor matching gift programs that will match charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees or trustees. Check with your company for more information on its matching gift program.
