There are many ways you can show your support for the Baltimore Museum of Industry.

Helen Delich Bentley Port Education Fund

Named in honor of the late congresswoman and BMI board member, and established with a generous gift from her estate, this charitable fund seeks to heighten awareness of the Port of Baltimore through the enrichment of the BMI’s educational and exhibition programs and the care of its historical collections. The fund will ensure that the BMI continues to raise awareness of Baltimore’s unique maritime and industrial heritage for many years to come. To make a donation to the Helen Delich Bentley Port Education Fund, please click here. 


In addition to cash donations, which may be pledged by check or credit card, the BMI also gladly accepts gifts of stock, planned or deferred contributions, and in-kind services. To discuss your giving options, please contact Penelope Fallon at or 410.727.4808 ext. 129.

Your donation may be eligible for a tax credit!

Thanks to the Community Investment Tax Credit [CITC] program offered by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, individuals can support the BMI and receive state tax credits of up to 50% of their donation, in addition to the standard state and federal tax deductions.

An individual participating in the CITC program may pay as little as 27 cents for each dollar contributed after tax credits and deductions are applied. Sound too good to be true? It’s not! Contact Penelope Fallon at or 410.727.4808 ext. 129.
