Donate NowThe mission of the Cahaba Foundation is to secure private financial support from individuals, corporations and foundations for the state historic park at Old Cahawba, site of Alabama’s first state capital.

You can support our efforts to preserve and enhance Old Cahawba.
We welcome:

  • Outright Gifts, especially cash or checks.
  • Memorial and Tribute Gifts
  • Matching Gifts by companies for employee contributions.
  • Pledges that can be paid in installments over three to five years.
  • Gifts of Securities: When stocks or bonds have increased (appreciated) in value, it is usually more beneficial to give appreciated securities directly rather than to sell the stock and donate the proceeds of the sale.
  • Deferred Gifts: Naming The Cahaba Foundation in a will is the best way to assure that you can leave a lasting legacy. We also welcome paid-in-full life insurance.
  • In-Kind Gifts of Land and Easements: If the property is within the Old Cahawba footprint, it would be retained. Otherwise, it may be sold and the proceeds used to support Old Cahawba.
  • In-Kind Gifts of Goods: Budget-relieving in-kind contributions are welcome, and a company can claim a charitable tax benefit for most of these types of gifts from their inventory.
  • In-Kind Gifts of Services: The donation of services is not tax deductible under current tax law; however, you will enjoy great satisfaction in providing unique professional services or volunteer assistance that can make an impact on the work of The Cahaba Foundation or the programs and services provided at Old Cahawba.

    Supporting our Southern History at Old Cahawba is a wise investment. We in this generation owe to posterity a duty to preserve and protect one of the most historic spots in Alabama. Please join us in this effort.
