Ways to Give

As a nonprofit organization, the Tri-State Warbird Museum depends on the generous support from individuals, corporations and foundations to help us continue our mission of remembering those who fought for our freedom, and honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice. All contributions are tax deductible.

If you would like additional information please contact Denise Eldridge at 513-735-4500.

Tri-State Warbird Museum
Attn: Denise Eldridge

Batavia, Ohio 45103


The museum often receives gifts from members and donors that are made in memory or in honor of a loved one. The gifts are tax deductible.

Gifts of stock

A stock donation is another way to help support the museum’s mission and is frequently the most economical way for supporters to make a charitable contribution.

Planned Giving

A bequest or charitable trust to the museum provides an enduring legacy and will help to ensure the long term financial stability for the museum.

Matching gifts program

Many employers offer matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by the employees. Check with your employer to see if your gift qualifies.

Make A Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)

If you are 70 1/2 or older with a traditional IRA, you can join our mission by giving a tax-free gift directly from your IRA to the museum. Since the gift doesn’t count as income, it can reduce your annual income level. Ask your IRA administrator about making a direct transfer to the Tri-State Warbird Museum. Consult your financial or legal advisor for specific information about how a QCD can benefit you.
