Give to the ANS


Your support allows the ANS to grow the collection and conduct diverse activities such as the digitization of our holdings, publications, and lectures by our curators around the world. There are many ways to give to the ANS with benefits available to you in thanks for your generosity.

Tax-deductible Donations

The ANS relies on the dedication and support of our members to undertake a rich array of projects. The Society is deeply grateful to all its members, whose partnership helps us promote the field of numismatics to an ever-widening public.

Share your passion for numismatics by making a 100% tax-deductible contribution.

Campaign to Endow the Chair of the Executive Director

On Thursday, January 8, at the Society’s 2015 Annual Gala Dinner, ANS President Sydney Martin announced the launch of a five-year, $4 million campaign to endow the Chair of the Executive Director. This is a critically important initiative to secure the long-term health of the ANS, and we are deeply gratified that many members of the Board of Trustees have collectively already pledged more than $1 million towards our goal. We are now asking our devoted donors and friends to join them and help us in this major fundraising effort. Learn more about the campaign to endow the Chair of the Executive Director.

Matching Gift Challenge – Help Fill in the Library’s Oriental Numismatics Collection

Dr. Wartenberg Kagan has found an anonymous donor who will contribute up to $1,000 in matching funds, in blocks of $50, to buy books listed in JONS that the ANS does not have. That is, for each U.S. tax-deductible gift of $50 to the ANS “Oriental Numismatic Book Fund,” that donor will contribute another $50 to buy books exclusively in this field. These resulting $100 blocks will ensure that the Harry W. Bass Jr. Library can purchase books on Oriental numismatics in a timely fashion, while they are still available in the market, from a fund dedicated to their acquisition.
