Maximize your impact and minimize your taxes with planned giving options at PWAM. From estate planning and Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) to charitable trusts, annuities, and charitable rollovers, there are numerous tax-efficient ways to support our mission. Explore opportunities like gifts of property and securities to leave a lasting legacy while enjoying potential tax benefits. Your generosity fuels our work to preserve history for generations to come.


Cash Donations: Donating cash is one of the simplest and most common ways to support a nonprofit. Donors can deduct the full amount of cash contributions, up to certain limits, on their tax returns.

Gifts of Appreciated Assets:  Donating appreciated assets like stocks, bonds, or real estate can provide tax benefits. By donating appreciated assets, donors can avoid capital gains taxes and may be able to deduct the fair market value of the asset on their tax returns.

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs): For individuals aged 70½ or older, making donations directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to a qualified charity can satisfy their required minimum distribution (RMD) and reduce taxable income. QCDs are tax-efficient ways to support nonprofits.

Planned Giving: Planned giving involves making charitable gifts as part of an individual's financial or estate planning. Options like bequests, charitable trusts, and charitable gift annuities can provide tax benefits while supporting the long-term sustainability of the nonprofit organization.

Considering a planned gift to Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum (PWAM) is a meaningful way to leave a lasting legacy while supporting the museum's mission of preserving aviation history for future generations.

By including PWAM in your estate planning, you can ensure that your love of aviation and commitment to education continue to impact the community long into the future.

Benefits of Planned Giving:

Legacy Preservation:

A planned gift allows you to preserve your legacy and support a cause that holds personal significance to you. By designating PWAM as a beneficiary in your estate plans, you ensure that your passion for aviation and history lives on through the museum's programs and exhibits.

Tax Advantages:

Planned giving can offer significant tax benefits, including potential reductions in estate and income taxes. Certain planned giving options, such as charitable remainder trusts or gifts of appreciated assets, may allow you to maximize your charitable impact while minimizing tax liabilities for your heirs.

Meaningful Impact:

Your planned gift directly supports PWAM's efforts to educate and inspire future generations through engaging exhibits, educational programs, and preservation initiatives. By partnering with PWAM in your estate planning, you play a vital role in ensuring that the museum continues to fulfill its mission for years to come.


Your support through planned giving ensures that Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum remains a vibrant and thriving institution for years to come.

Whether you choose to make a bequest in your will, establish a charitable trust, or explore other planned giving options, your generosity will have a lasting impact on the museum and the community it serves.
