GiveBIG 2016
Support education, preservation and restoration...schedule your #GiveBIG gift today! 
Together we can make an impact by participating in GiveBig tomorrow, May 3! Please consider making a donation to America’s Car Museum during this one-day online charitable giving event. Donations will be stretched thanks to additional funds from the Seattle Foundation and a matching grant of $1,000, offered by Chuck and Pam Lyford.
 
Help support Education, Restoration and Preservation on #GIVEBIG by choosing ACM as the non-profit you will support with your donation through the Seattle Foundation.
Your gift to America’s Car Museum on #GiveBIG will help inspire lifelong learning. ACM reaches a wide range of audiences from pre-kindergarten to post-secondary, toddlers to seniors, scouts to afterschool clubs, and families to adults. Through the Hagerty Education Program at America's Car Museum, we are supporting a pathway to careers and hands-on career-based education for young people across the country by awarding scholarships and educational grants to organizations committed to automotive restoration and preservation.
 
Tomorrow, May 3, join other ACM supporters across the country to give for one common purpose: to celebrate America’s love affair with the automobile. Then, tell everyone you can via email, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram about how you are giving to support America’s Car Museum!
 
We set a fundraising goal of $10,000 for GiveBIG and we hope you will participate in helping us reach our goal!

FEATURED VEHICLE
1909 Hudson Twenty Roadster
The Hudson Motor Car Company was founded in 1909 by auto pioneers Howard Coffin, George W. Dunham and Roy E. Chapin. Primarily funded by department store owner Joseph L. Hudson, their idea was to build a low-priced car for under $1000. The resulting new Hudson “20” introduced in June 1909 was one of the first low-priced cars for sale on the American market.

FUEL FOR THOUGHT
Either You Decide Who Will Receive Your Assets or Your State Will Decide
To determine who gets what after your death provides a tremendous financial advantage.

Although you will incur some expenses in having a will drafted, writing your own is inadvisable. In addition, you will need to invest time in communicating your desires to an experienced estate attorney. Once done, however, it will be one of the wisest investments you ever made. Click here to read on.
Show your love for ACM! Take a minute to vote the Museum as "Best Entertainment."
