Contribution Form

Please enclose this Temporary Custody Receipt form with any items or images you elect to send us. This form provides us with the information necessary to begin processing your donation.  Please fill the form out with detailed information about the materials you are sending, including the names of all people pictured in photographs, their relationship to your loved one, and the photographs' approximate dates and locations (if known). You are welcome to send us up to 30 photographs. Donations exceeding this number will be reviewed, and a selection will be made by the Museum. If you would like us to return your photographs after scanning them, please also indicate this on the form.

After your items and Temporary Custody Receipt are received and have been reviewed, you will be sent a Deed of Gift form through the mail to confirm your donation. A completed Deed of Gift form allows the Museum to use your donated items in exhibitions, publications and educational programs. On the Deed of Gift form, you will have the option of selecting whether or not you are comfortable with extending use of your materials to commercial endeavors the Museum might develop, typically taking the form of books, cards, and commemorative products. You will also be asked to provide a preferred credit line for your donation. Packages should be addressed to: 

Chief Curator
National September 11 Memorial & Museum
