​DONATIONS

YOUR GENEROUS FINANCIAL DONATION SUPPORTS THE MUSEUM

 

The Warren Engine Co. No. 1 Museum relies upon the generosity of our visitors and people like you to maintain the museum and its priceless collections.  The museum is a 501(c)4 tax exempt non-profit organization.  Charitable contributions are used to preserve and maintain the collection, maintain and improve the museum setting, support museum operations, and provide a financial commitment for the future of the museum operation and preservation of its collections.

Charitable donations can be made in any amount and at any time by sending a check to:

Warren Engine Co. No. 1

777 South Stewart Street

Carson City, NV  89701

 

Planned Giving

Other ways in which to contribute to the future of the Warren Engine Co. No. 1 Museum include planned giving in which a donor makes provision for their family, and then designates resources for the charities they cherish, reducing their tax
liability now and in the future.  Be sure to talk with your attorney and or accountant about a planned giving gift to the museum. 


Such gifts can be in the form of:

Bequests through a will or revocable living trust

U.S. Savings Bonds (because the museum is tax exempt, it receives the full value of the bonds)

IRAs and qualified retirement plans like 401(K)s

Designation of the fire museum as owner and/or beneficiary of a paid up life insurance policy that is not longer needed for its original purpose, and other means that may be suggested by your attorney and or accountant.

 

 

DONATION OF ARTIFACTS, PHOTOGRAPHS


The Warren Engine Co. No. 1 Museum actively seeks donation of items and photographs for our museum collection that meet and are within our mission statement.  The mission statement helps set limits for the collection which saves the museum time, space, money and other resources.

 

Specific Areas Of Collection


The primary scope of the collections of the Warren Engine Company Museum is fire apparatus, artifacts, photographs and documents from the fire companies in Carson City and surrounding areas that may be representative objects that assist in illustrating the history of those fire companies of Carson City and surrounding areas.

 

The Warren Engine Co. No. 1 Museum Committee reviews all potential donations of items. Items temporarily accepted for “accession consideration,” shall not be considered part of the “permanent” collection of the museum until they meet the requirements set forth in the “Collection Policy,” and gain the approval of the Museum Committee.  And, there are times when we simply must decline
the offer of an item.  Our mission statement and collections policy help us to determine those times.
