GENERAL DONATIONS TO THE BUFFALO SOLDIER NATIONAL MUSEUM
Help Continue The Buffalo Soldier Legacy During COVID-19
The 1866 campaign is a fundraising effort designed to help us recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. We have been closed for four months, which has adversely affected our operations. We NEED YOUR SUPPORT to ensure that we bounce back stronger than ever.
HEAL THE ARMORY CAMPAIGN
The Historic Houston Light Guard Armory
One of the nation’s treasures, The Historic Houston Light Guard Armory, has faced many years of neglect which has caused the building to deteriorate. In its 94-year history, it has also been struck by many hurricanes, tropical storms, and vandalism. Since the Center of African American Military History, dba BSNM, purchased the building, we have made it our mission to renovate, restore, preserve and revitalize this space to its natural condition with a modern touch.
Brick Paver Donation Program
Create a lasting memory; honor a veteran, cheer your alma mater, promote your business, surprise a loved one, remember a special date or event by simply purchasing a one of a kind engraved LEGACY BRICK. Bricks are permanently displayed on the Soldiers Plaza at the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum, previously known as the Houston Light Guard Armory, built in 1925. Your brick purchase will not only create a legacy but will help to preserve our historic facility.
Cathay Williams Society
Planned Giving Program
Cathay Williams was the only known female African American Buffalo Soldier. She was the first black woman to be documented for her service in the U.S. Army before women were officially allowed to enlist.
Including the CAAMH dba BSNM in your plans will enable us to continue to advance the mission of our institution and provide historical resources for years to come. Your future gift would go to support operations, youth programming, exhibitions, collections and archives.
There are many ways to make a planned gift to the CAAMH dba BSNM that will provide benefits to you and the Museum, including:
Naming the Museum in a will or estate plan.
Designating life insurance proceeds or donating an insurance policy.
Making the Museum a beneficiary of your retirement plan, IRA, 401(k), 203(b).
Establishing a charitable trust with the Museum.
Transferring real estate to the Museum through a life estate.
Promising a gift of a work (or works) of art that the Museum has agreed to accept.
