There are three ways to donate to the Museum of Public Relations:
- Financial support: Your tax deductible financial donation helps the Museum preserve, maintain and exhibit hundreds of rare, original materials documenting the evolution of the public relations profession. As the only archive of its kind in the world, the museum is increasingly called upon by business, academia, the media and government to provide content, data and visuals unavailable elsewhere. Donations may be made through our PayPal page, via check to our offices on Broadway (see address below) or email us for instructions to transfer securities to the Museum's brokerage account.
Your funding helps the Museum with:
— digitizing one-of-a-kind pamphlets, documents and books to make them available online.
— buying materials for our space at Baruch College, e.g., exhibit cases, signage, framing, and restoration supplies.
— supporting part-time workers to assist with tours and lectures at the museum space and answering online queries.
- Papers, artifacts and books: We plan to continue building our collection with historically significant materials. One of our goal is to broaden our collection to include rare historical materials from countries outside of the U.S. Your donation is tax deductible and based upon the value of your materials. Kindly send us a note and photograph, if possible, describing the materials you would like to donate, and we will contact you.
- Volunteering: As a nonprofit organization, we seek volunteers to serve in a number of capacities, depending upon one's skills, experience and interest. These could include: media relations, fundraising, event management and conducting tours. Kindly contact us with your CV and we'll be in touch.
