Donate to the Museum

There are several ways that you can give back to the community by donating to the Blackhawk Museum. You can donate a vehicle to our Wheels for Wheelchairs programs, donate to the Children's Education and Transportation Fund, or donate a legacy gift to keep the Museum running.

A rare car's worth can be greater that its cash value. When the time comes, help share the joy of mobility with Americans in need of wheelchairs by donating your classic to Blackhawk Museum.

Wheels for Wheelchairs

Wheels for Wheelchairs gives car collectors, aficionados and their families the chance to honor their passion and share the gift of mobility with hundreds and thousands of Americans in need of wheelchairs.

Before your car goes to a new owner, let us share the ride with others. Donate your classic car, hot rod or any other favorite ride to Blackhawk.

Children's Education and Transportation Fund

All donations to the Children’s Education & Transportation Fund, a non-profit 501 ( c ) 3 organization, have been matched to $25,000 annually by the Patricia R. Behring Foundation. This Foundation provides school groups with funding for transportation & admission costs while visiting the Blackhawk Museum.

Educational programming has been a primary mission of the Blackhawk Museum since opening in 1988. Over 200,000 students have visited the Museum during the last 30 years with tours targeting every age level. We invite all school groups, grades Kindergarten through High School, to experience the Blackhawk Museum.
