Kings Mountain Historical Museum


Kings Mountain Historical Museum is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  To best serve our community and our visitors from across the world, we do not charge admission fees for our exhibits and programs.

We are deeply grateful for the portion of our annual financial support we receive from Cleveland County and from the City of Kings Mountain.  The remainder of our operating budget is primarily raised through our Annual Reverse Raffle & Auctions fundraising event, which is supported by local businesses and community members.

Donations to KMHM are tax deductible.  KMHM is grateful for all contributions and welcomes gifts of any amount; every donation counts!  Many employers also participate in matching gift programs for nonprofit organizations.  Find out if your employer participates to double your gift.

You can use the "Donate" button below to make your contribution right now - safely and easily online!

Tribute Gifts
A tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor someone special with a gift that will help Kings Mountain Historical Museum continue to provide quality programs and services to our community.  The recipient of your tribute gift will receive an acknowledgement letter letting them know about your donation to Kings Mountain Historical Museum made in their honor.  Tribute gifts make wonderful presents for holidays and special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and weddings.  Tribute gifts are also a great way to show your appreciation for a teacher, colleague, or friend who shares your love of the Museum.


Memorial Gifts
A memorial gift is a thoughtful way to celebrate the memory of a loved one by making a donation to the Museum in their honor.  Should you choose to designate a recipient, an acknowledgement letter will be sent letting them know about your donation made in memory of their loved one.  Memorial gifts preserve a living legacy that will help Kings Mountain Historical Museum serve the future generations of this region. 

Planned Gifts
A gift to Kings Mountain Historical Museum through your will or revocable trust will help to ensure that the Museum will continue to make a lasting difference in the lives of future generations. A bequest is easy to arrange, does not affect your assets or cash flow during your lifetime, and is revocable.  A charitable bequest or trust reduces the value of your estate for federal estate tax purposes, and exempts it from state inheritance taxes.  You can also leave a lasting legacy by naming the Museum as a beneficiary of an insurance policy or as the recipient of your IRA or retirement fund.  Planned gifts are a means by which ordinary people can make extraordinary improvements to organizations they support.
