We are pleased to announce that you can now donate stock to The Walt Disney Family Museum using a streamlined process.

Help us continue our important education programming, including the At-Promise Youth Animation Academy initiative, by considering a stock donation.

We have partnered with Overflow to make giving via stock quick, easy, and secure. You can even give stock directly from your phone.

It is a great, tax-efficient way to give. By donating stock directly, you can receive up to 37% savings on federal and state income taxes through a charitable donation deduction while avoiding the capital gains taxes you would incur by liquidating the stock and sending our organization the cash, all at zero additional cost to you. You can deduct the full value of the stock as a charitable gift just like cash.
