Dear Friends,

Your gifts to the Museum of Miniature Houses & Other Collections, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law.  We gratefully accept monetary donations and donations of dollhouses and miniature accessories.

If you are considering a monetary donation to the Museum of Miniature Houses, we thank you for supporting us.  You may use the Donate button below to make a donation by credit card.  Or you can mail a check (with your phone number noted) to:  Donations, Museum of Miniature Houses, 111 East Main Street, Carmel, IN 46032.

Many companies match their employees’ (and retirees’) contributions.  Please check to see if your company will match your tax-deductible donation to the Museum.

Please remember the Museum of Miniature Houses in your will and estate plans.

The museum also welcomes donations of stock. Please contact us at info@museumofminiatures.org if you are interested in this kind of donation.

We thank you for considering the Museum of Miniature Houses and Other Collections as you look to find a new home for your miniatures. The Museum accepts donations of dollhouses and miniature accessories on two different bases: as items for the Museum’s permanent collection and as items for sale, the proceeds of which will benefit the Museum.
 
Upon inquiry of a physical donation, the Museum may request that the prospective donor send photos and descriptions of the item.   Upon the donation’s acceptance, the Museum will work with the donor to schedule a drop-off of the item, and the donor will fill out a Donation Form.
 
If the item is accepted into the permanent collection, it will be accessioned and stored with the rest of the Museum’s collection until used for display. Please know that your donation will not always be on display, but this does not mean that your donation is any less important to the Museum.  Please also understand that storing and preserving miniatures in our collection is costly, so we cannot select all donations for the permanent collection.
 
Because it is not feasible to accession every donation into the permanent collection, there is also the option of donating miniatures for us to sell in our Museum Shop or annual Attic Sale.
These sales not only benefits the Museum, they also allow other miniaturists the opportunity to maintain their hobby at an affordable price point.
 
Should you have any questions about this process or to inquire about a prospective donation, please contact the Museum’s Vice President at kathy.birk@gmail.com.
