Make a Monetary Contribution or a Material Donation

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Chevy Chase Historical Society. There are many ways to support CCHS: you can join the society, give a gift membership, become a volunteer, or make a material donation.

Monetary Contributions

We invite you to become a Friend of the Society today and help us to bring to life our community’s past for present and future generations. Like most nonprofit organizations, the Chevy Chase Historical Society (CCHS) appreciates and relies upon the generosity of individuals, businesses, and corporations.   Your tax-deductible monetary contributions support our many programs, exhibitions, and daily operations.

Material Donations

In addition to monetary contributions, we welcome material donations.  Our collection of historical artifacts and ephemera depends on the generosity of those who presently live or work in Chevy Chase, once resided in the community, or have an interest in preserving local history.   Items such as photographs, yearbooks, maps, books, personal papers, and family histories are all gratefully accepted by CCHS and help us to preserve the cultural and social history of the area.

For more information about making donations, please contact Chevy Chase Historical Society or call 301-656-6141.

CCHS is a federally-registered non-profit corporation under section 501(c) 3 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code, registration #52-1279019. Donations and shipping costs are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.  The deed of gift form, which donors sign to transfer ownership of the donation to CCHS, also serves as a tax receipt.  However, CCHS is forbidden by federal law from providing any information on the value (real or perceived) of any object(s) donated or potentially donated to it. CCHS advises you to contact a regional branch of the Appraisers Association of America and seek the counsel of a tax professional when donating.
