Checks payable to "UA Foundation/ASM" with "benefit sale" in the memo line. No portion of your purchase is tax deductible. All sales final. You accept the inherent risk in shipping fragile items. You understand these are one-of-a-kind items that cannot be replaced and the purchase price/shipping costs will not be refunded.

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!
