Car Donation Program The Museum accepts cars and other vehicle donations through our Collector Car Program but even an everyday vehicle can generate support for the Museum. We have been accepting car, truck and motorcycle donations for over 40 years and are both a non-profit charitable organization and a licensed Massachusetts car dealer. In addition to museum quality automobiles we accept vehicle donations in a variety of conditions from unfinished projects to late model used cars. Through your generous donation you are eligible for valuable tax credits while saving yourself a great deal of time and headache. Help the Museum and donate your individual vehicle or collection today! If you are interested in making an Automobile donation to the Museum, please contact the Car Sales Manager.


Gifts by will have become an integral part of philanthropic tradition because such gifts enable a person to make significant contributions that may not have been possible during life. Some common examples of bequests are:

• General Bequest: a specified dollar amount.

• Specific Bequest: specific piece of property. 

• Residuary Bequest: all or part of property after all debts, taxes, expenses, and all other bequests have been paid.

• Percentage Bequest: a percentage of the estate or the residuary estate.

Every gift counts: Monetary or other tax-deductible contributions to the Museum fund some of our greatest needs from securing the preservation of rare vehicles, funding the lawn events, to extending the reach of our educational initiatives to various groups including under-served communities.
