Interested in donating items for our collections?

If you have one or more items that you are considering donating to the Perkins Archives we ask that you follow the procedure outlined below.

How to proceed:

Those who wish to donate materials to the Perkins Archives, should contact the Archives at [email protected] or call 617-972-7565 to speak with an Archivist. This will allow us to determine whether the offered materials are appropriate and fit within the scope of the collections policy. If the offered materials are determined to be appropriate, the donor will complete a Deed of Gift provided by the Archivist before the items are accessioned. The School cannot perform or pay for monetary appraisals of gifts that a potential donor may desire for tax purposes.
