Support the Collection

The Folger collection has both great depth and a broad range and grows significantly every year. Please consider supporting this critical resource to scholars by making a donation.

We also invite you to make an in-kind donation to the Folger collection, to help us build this important archive. In-kind donations to the collection can include books, manuscripts, works of art, as well as other items. Read more about our collection development policy

You can also support the Library's collection by attending Acquisitions Night. During this annual benefit, guests examine rare books and other recent additions and have the opportunity to “adopt” them while learning from Folger curators, conservators, and librarians.

If you would like to make a financial contribution to support the collection, please contact the development and events department. 

For more information, please contact Winnie Harrington Robinson at (202) 675-0377 or wrobinson@folger.edu.
