How to donate

Donating to the Esther Clark Wright Archives is easy. You need to contact us and arrange a time for our staff to review the material or send us a general list of the material you want to donate. Our staff determine if the material is relevant to the collection. If so, you will be asked to sign a Deed of Gift; this is a legal agreement between the donor and the Esther Clark Wright Archives. Records that are donated must be clearly identified as to the content, date, names of individuals, relationships of individuals in the records, and other important information.

If you wish to make a monetary donation to the Archives, please contact the Archives.
