It may be advantageous for you to make a gift of appreciated stock or securities. First, donors receive an income tax deduction equal to the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift. In addition, no capital gains tax is due when WonderLab sells the stock, so the full value of the gift supports our mission.
When transferring stock, please call the Development Department at (812) 337-1337 x 14 to let us know your broker will be transferring stock, the kind of stock and how much, and where you want the proceeds to go (e.g., the Annual Fund, to fund a specific program, etc.). The Development Department will provide you with specific wiring instructions to share with your broker.

You can ensure that future generations have creative and inspiring hands-on science experiences at WonderLab by making a legacy gift. Donors of all ages and means can include a gift to WonderLab in their wills, and bequests of all sizes help ensure the museum's future. Please consult your legal and tax advisors regarding possible tax benefits, and make sure you designate the WonderLab Museum of Science, Health and Technology in Bloomington, Indiana. If you wish, we will acknowledge your invaluable support during your lifetime through the WonderLab Legacy Society.
Upon occasion, WonderLab is able to offer special giving opportunities, such as through the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP). Individuals and families also may make in-kind gifts or sponsor WonderLab fund-raising events. Please contact the Development Office to discuss these opportunities.
WonderLab is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Some donor benefits may have sufficient value to reduce the tax-deductible amount of your gift. Waiving these benefits means that your entire contribution supports WonderLab's mission, and the full amount of your gift is tax-deductible. Please consult your tax advisor.
