By check

Mail your check for a tax-deductible contribution to Manned Space Flight Education Foundation, Development Department, 1601 NASA Parkway, Houston, TX 77058. You may designate your gift to one of three priority programs: Education, Exhibits or Capital Projects, by indicating your designation on the memo line of your check or with accompanying correspondence.

Gifts of stock

A gift of appreciated securities can be a financially beneficial donation. Donors receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock on the date of the transfer and avoid capital gains on its appreciated value.

If you are considering making a gift of securities, please contact us prior to making the donation so we can provide you or your broker with the banking information for the transfer. We will record the specific date of your transfer to provide you with the appropriate tax documentation.

Matching gifts

Many companies provide a matching gift program for their employees. You can double or even triple your impact through a matching gift. If you are not sure, please contact your company’s human resources office.

Planned gifts

Planned giving is a way to make a gift while maximizing your investment goals. Planned gifts should be made in consultation with your financial advisor. The simplest form of planned gift is a bequest. Suggested bequest language to share with your advisor is:

“After fulfilling all other provisions, I give, devise, and bequeath ____% of the remainder of my estate or $ ____ [specific amount] to The Manned Space Flight Education Foundation. (Tax ID 76-0217152), a charitable organization incorporated under the laws of Texas, located at 1601 NASA Parkway, Houston, TX 77058.”
