Checks payable to "UA Foundation/ASM" with "benefit sale" in the memo line. No portion of your purchase is tax deductible. All sales final.

This array of previously owned individual items and estate collections is donated throughout the year specifically to be sold for the benefit of ASM's ethnological collections. The Benefit Sale is produced annually by the Friends of the ASM Collections. Funds raised allow curators to make purchases that enhance the museum's ethnological collections, and help underwrite events and exhibits that share ASM collections with the public. Our great thanks to the members of the Benefit Sale Committee!
