Artifact Donations

The #WomensMarch was one of the largest demonstrations of women in history and the National Woman’s Party wants to tell that story. Contact us if you want to donate items, including placards, clothing, photographs, and more!

We are looking for items from the #WomensMarch for future exhibitions and programs. If you are interested in sharing your story and your artifacts from that day, contact the National Woman’s Party for more information.

Donate an Artifact

How can I donate an artifact to the National Woman’s Party?

To donate an object, please contact Jennifer Krafchik, Deputy Director at jennifer.krafchik@nationalwomansparty.org. Please send a detailed description of the object(s).

Item donations made to the National Woman’s Party may result in the following possible actions:

  • Objects may be added to the National Woman’s Party Collection
  • Objects may be added to the Exhibition Collection
  • Objects may be added to the Program and Education Collection

The Deputy Director will work with you to determine whether the object(s) meets the organization’s collecting criteria. Criteria for evaluating the object for acceptance into the collection include the following considerations:

  • Was the object made or used by the National Woman’s Party and/or its members?
  • What is the objects historical significance?
  • Can documentation (written or oral) on the object be found?
  • Does the object need conservation treatment?
  • Does the object support the existing collection?
  • Is the object a duplicate?
  • What is the object’s exhibition potential?
  • What impact would the object have on available storage space?

If the object meets enough criteria, the Deputy Director will notify you of the decision. If the item is accepted by the National Woman’s Party, staff will notify which collection the object(s) will be added and send you a Deed of Gift form. This legal document certifies that the object is yours to donate and that you agree to assign all rights associated with the object to the National Woman’s Party. When you sign and return the deed of gift, the object becomes part of the designated collection of the National Woman’s Party at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument.
