Non-monetary gifts of products, services, experiences, and promotions are always welcome. RAM also appreciates donations of new or gently used items. This is a fantastic opportunity to not only get rid of those great items cluttering up your world but to support further development in your community.

Please be advised that as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, RAM is prohibited from establishing monetary gift values. Donors must determine the value of in-kind gifts. Donations are tax-deductible within IRS regulations. Please consult your tax advisor.

Please drop off items at Racine Art Museum, 441 Main Street, Racine.
