Donate Your Fine Art and Artifacts
Summum is a non-profit organization interested in receiving tax deductible donations of art, artifacts, and other collectibles from businesses and private individuals. If you donate your collectibles to us, you may deduct the value of your donation from your state and federal income taxes.
Summum is a 501(c)(3) organization as well as a 50% limit organization which enables you to take the largest tax deduction allowable under Internal Revenue Service rules. However, special limits apply for donations of capital gain property. Please see the IRS website for details on limits on deductions. You can verify Summum's status as a 50% limit organization by searching for summum in the IRS online version of Publication 78.
Depending on the value of items you donate, your donation may need to be accompanied with a valid authentic appraisal. For information about tax deductions for charitable giving, we recommend you review Publication 526: Charitable Contributions and Form 8283: Noncash Charitable Contributions available from the IRS website. Form 8283 provides details for when appraisals are required.
