The Museum’s collections contain objects donated by individual collectors, organizations, and Wake Forest faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Artifact donations can help fill gaps in the collections, make it possible to improve or change exhibit, provide additional research resources for students and scholars, and contribute to K-12 education programs. Donations may be tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Collectors often find it more advantageous to donate objects to a museum than to sell them through a dealer.

If you are interested in donating objects to the collection, please contact Academic Director Andrew Gurstelle at or 336.758.5827.
