GIFT and DONATION GUIDELINES
The Center for Cultural Resources (CCR) values and appreciates the generosity of our friends who wish to donate resources for our collections. In order to maintain the integrity of the collections and maximize their usefulness to educators and others who borrow them, we have established a few simple guidelines and respectfully ask that you adhere to them.
Please note that once we accept materials the Board of Directors of the CCR reserves the right to use them in the way we believe to be most advantageous to the organization. This includes permanent placement in CCR kits or displays or use for purposes of publicity, hospitality or fundraising including the auction or sale of items. Unless we have solicited the loan of an item for a specific program or display, once items are given to the CCR, they cannot be returned. Those individuals requiring an acknowledgement for tax purposes should be prepared to furnish evidence of their value.
We ask that you consider the following guidelines in donating materials for the CCR:
- Print and other media materials must be timely and of lasting value. Please do not include travel brochures or tourist information unless they feature a specific site of major historical, cultural or ecological interest or include substantial text in a language of which we do not have other samples.
- Some media materials (including books, pamphlets, articles from print and on-line sources, photographs, audio and video) are intended primarily to convey well-established facts or information about which most people would agree. Others represent distinct points of view. Both kinds of materials are valuable. It would be helpful to those using the materials to have points of view labeled.
- Artifacts must be labeled to indicate source and purpose. Please include as much information as possible about when, where and how an article was used, and, where relevant, how you obtained it.
- Artifacts that are fragile should be labeled as such so that they can be handled and stored properly.
- Please do not donate perishable items.
