DONATING TO THE CALIFORNIA HISTORICAL SOCIETY COLLECTION
The CHS Collection continues to grow through the generous support of our donors, who give funds to assist with the purchase of new acquisitions, remember CHS through planned giving in their estates, or offer historically significant materials for the collection. Gifts large and small make it possible for CHS to collect, preserve, document, and share the state's continuing heritage.
All donation offers are carefully reviewed by our collections staff. We check to see if the proposed donation fits within the scope of our collecting plan and determine if we have the resources to adequately care for the item or collection. Please note that CHS does not accept delivery of unsolicited donations.
In order to submit a donation offer for consideration, please fill out and submit the donation offer form. You may also request that the donation offer form be emailed or mailed to you. Our staff will carefully consider your offer and respond within 30 days. If you have any questions about the acquisitions process, please contact Christine Adams by email at email@example.com or by phone at (415) 357-1848, ext. 238.
Thank you for your interest in supporting the California Historical Society.
