There is still time to make your 2015 contribution to help the Rice NW Museum

Without you, the educational programs of the Rice NW Museum would not be possible. If you have not yet made your contributions to the Rice NW Museum this year, there is still time.

Cash contributions by mail

All cash contributions are 100% deductible.  You can mail your check to the museum and as long as the letter is post marked by December 31, 2015 you can deduct the donation for 2015.

Cash contributions online

Making your contribution is easy and safe to do online.  Just click our DONATE button on any page of our website.

In person

We love to see our supporters. Stop by the museum Gift Shop and make your contribution in person.  You can also call and we can take your contribution over the phone.

IRA transfer

If you are at least 70-1/2 years old, you can make a charitable contribution to the Rice NW Museum by rolling over any amount of an IRA up to $100,000 tax free. Contact your investment adviser to ask how to do this. This is retroactive to January 1, 2015 and is now permanent so consider doing this in 2016 as well.

Shop and contribute

If you shop at Fred Meyers, register your shopping card online through their Community Rewards Program. You can also shop through the Amazon Smile program. Doing either of these things cost you nothing extra and Fred Meyers and Amazon will contribute a portion of your purchase to the Rice NW Museum.


Become a member of the Rice NW Museum. You will get unlimited free admission to the museum and other museums in the Portland area (details will be announced next week). You will also get invited to special events at the museum that will be announced throughout 2016.  Already a members?  Renew, extend your membership, or upgrade your membership level.
