Donating items to our collections

Donations form an invaluable part of our artifact and library collections. All donations are stored in a climate-controlled environment using the latest methods in preservation and conservation, so that the materials will be available for use by researchers for many years. We collect only material that is specific to the military history of New York and New Yorkers. Also, because of space limitations and redundancy, we must be selective of the items we accept for our permanent collections. If you have materials that you think would fit into our collection, please contact us.

If you would like to donate materials to our collections, please contact us at or fill in the form below.
