Thank you for considering making a donation to WSJHS collections. The collections are made up of both artifacts and archives donated by people like you, and we appreciate your desire to become involved in preserving and presenting our local history. Once you have made the decision to donate, you will be asked to complete a deed of gift form. After this form is signed and returned, the object becomes part of the Jewish Archives at the University of Washington, or of the WSJHS Collection. Your gift will help ensure that present and future generations can enjoy and share in our rich and diverse heritage.
