Donate

The women and men who settled and shaped the American West made countless acts of sacrifice and generosity. Each generation has shown the way to the next.

Gifts of all kinds help support the Cowgirl Museum today and for future generations. When you make a gift, you’ll be entitled to a charitable deduction that may reduce the income taxes you owe. Here are a few ways you can help us keep the Cowgirl’s mission alive.

Your gift is very important to us as we seek to fulfill the mission of the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame to “honor and celebrate women, past and present, whose lives exemplify the courage, resilience, and independence that helped shape the American West, and fosters an appreciation of the ideals and spirit of self-reliance they inspire.”

For more information about making a gift, please call 817.336.4475 or email development@cowgirl.net.

Enhance Your Legacy with a Planned Gift

A planned gift is one of the ways that our supporters help advance the mission of the Cowgirl while receiving financial and tax benefits. A variety of options enable you to leave a meaningful legacy to the Cowgirl while rewarding yourself and your loved ones. You can:

  • Make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime.
  • Make a gift that pays you income for life.
  • Donate your house, take a tax deduction and continue to live in it rent-free.
  • Give life insurance you no longer need.
  • Give appreciate stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares and realize larger tax savings than when you donate cash.
  • Preserve your estate for your children while delivering ongoing support to the Cowgirl.

Make a gift that lasts. For more information, please contact the development office at 817.336.4475 or development@cowgirl.net. Your inquiry will be confidential.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship Opportunities

We’ve yet to find wider shoulders than the ones we find in Fort Worth. Simply, many of our exhibitions wouldn’t be possible without the generous contributions from hundreds of sponsoring organizations.

Would you be interested in sponsoring a specific event such as our annual Induction Luncheon, one of our many education programs, or a special exhibit? Contributions can also be made in other forms, including helping us with transportation for our works of art, catering food for events, promoting the Museum or offering direct financial support.
In return, we’ll recognize you in prominent print promotions, as well as by signs placed inside the Museum during a sponsored event.

Is your organization interested in being recognized for your support of the arts? We’ll tailor our benefits to fit your needs and interests. Let’s talk. Please contact Jennifer Siegel at: jsiegel@cowgirl.net.

donate to the collection

Donate to the Collection

The Museum is dedicated to collecting artifacts relating to Hall of Fame Honorees and other women of the West.  The majority of artifacts in the collection were donated by the public.  Without these donations, it would be impossible for the Museum to preserve and interpret the history of the cowgirl and the western lifestyle.  If you are interested in donating an object to the Museum, please email info@cowgirl.com or call 817-509-8983.

Help the Museum preserve the story of the cowgirl for future generations by adopting an artifact. Click here for more information.
