American Friendship Society

SMK’s American friendship society is called AFSMK (American Friends of SMK), and it aims to strengthen the relationship between the museum and its American audience.

AFSMK is a Danish-American charity organization, founded in 2009 with a view to strengthen the relationship between the museum and its American audience and friends. The purpose of AFSMK is to guarantee and present charitable, scientific and educational activities for the benefit of the museum and its users. AFSMK is approved under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.

Contribute to AFSMK
When you support AFSMK, you automatically help preserve and pass on Danish cultural heritage – to present and future generations. If you wish to make a contribution, you have several options. You can donate by check, make a bank transfer or donate online at Donate now. You may also donate shares.

If you are a U.S. citizen, your donations to AFSMK are tax-deductible.

To maintain the deductible status of donations U.S. tax law requires that AFSMK's Board of Directors retain control and discretion concerning gifts to SMK. Although gifts to AFSMK must therefore be without restrictive conditions, AFSMK's Board of directors will as a matter of course consider the preferences of donors – regarding wishes that the funds be spent in specific ways for the benefit of SMK.
