Matching Gifts

Many employers will match a gift you make to the Aquarium, doubling or even tripling your contribution, including your membership purchase!

If you or your spouse work for, or are retired from, a company that has a matching gift program, please check to see if your donation qualifies.

Obtaining the matching gift through your employer is usually a simple process and requires no more than filling out a form obtained through your Human Resources department.

Your employer can send the matching gift to:
National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium
Attn: Development Department
350 E. 3rd St.
Dubuque, IA 52001


If you own appreciated securities such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds, contributing them to the Aquarium is a win-win situation.

You receive a charitable deduction and reduce your capital gains taxes. The Aquarium receives funds to continue our valuable education and conservation work.

For questions regarding giving gifts of appreciated securities, please contact Erin Dragotto, VP of Development, at 563-557-9545 x 210.
