Ways to Give

Making a Tribute Gift

Every donation helps the NCF to continue our mission to educate the public about the importance of cryptology, as well as stimulate interest in cryptology and cyber-related career fields, and finally to commemorate those who have served the cryptologic mission. Patrons, Benefactors, and Founders are recognized on our website, as well as within the Foundation's display at the National Cryptologic Museum.

If you would like to make a TRIBUTE DONATION - please note the different options below and use the form on this page. You will have the opportunity to include contact information for anyone we should notify about your special gift.

In Memoriam Registry - A tribute donation for a person who served in the cryptologic field can qualify the honoree to be included in our In Memoriam Registry. A total contribution of $100 or more (from one or more donors) is required to include an individual in the In Memoriam Registry. Registry honorees are featured on our website and are also included in a physical kiosk located at the Museum.

In Memoriam Panel - $5,000 or more in donations (from one or more donors) is required for an individual to be included in the In Memoriam Panel. These individuals are also featured on our website and at the Museum.

Tribute Gifts for Anyone - You can also make a donation In Honor of or In Memory of a friend, colleague, family member, etc. who did not serve in any cryptologic capacity - simply as a meaningful way to honor them.

The IRS classifies the Foundation as a 501 (C)(3) organization, which, under the Federal Tax Code, permits you to deduct your contribution to the full extent of the law. All documents pertaining to the Foundation's tax exempt status are available for inspection upon request.
