Support the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art
The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, chartered by the New York State Board of Regents, is operated by the Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation. We depend on donations from generous individuals like you to continue our work. Please make a donation today to help us continue our quality exhibitions, community programming and build our collection.
Your donation supports our programs, which include year round exhibitions by internationally known curators, offering work not seen anywhere else.
All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. The Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation is a non-profit organization, exempt from taxation under 501(c)3 of the IRS Code.
To donate, you can mail a check payable to "Leslie Lohman Gay Art Foundation" to LLGAF, 26 Wooster Street, New York, New York 10013. Or you may donate online using your credit card through NY Charities. Online donations are fast and easy and NY Charities' servers are secure. When you donate online, you'll receive an electronic receipt for tax purposes.
Gifts of Stock
A gift of appreciated stocks or bonds is a simple and tax-effective way to support the programs of the Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation. You’ll receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of a gift of appreciated securities held longer than one year. Stock held at a brokerage account can be delivered electronically through the Depository Trust Company (DTC) program. It's secure and easy. Contact us and we'll give you our broker's DTC number and the Foundation's brokerage account number. Your broker will need this information, and will have you fill out certain forms to complete the transaction. This type of transfer can usually be done within 24 hours of the request being submitted to DTC.
