Gifts in Memory or Honor

The Newseum offers two ways to honor a friend or loved one. Your gift “in honor” or gift “in memory” will be acknowledged with a gift card informing the family member or friend you designate.

For gifts of $10,000 and more, you may name a theater seat in the Newseum. Donors at this level automatically become members of the Friends of the First Amendment Society at the Defender Level. For more information, please contact Ryan Merkel at 202/292-6294 or email him at

The Newseum is a 501(c)(3) public charity. Donations to the Newseum are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
