Make a gift

This past year has been full of unprecedented challenges for all of us and for the cultural institutions we cherish. We hope that you will consider donating to support the Folger's areas of greatest need as we face those challenges and plan for a bright future together.

By donating specifically to our new Mask Campaign, you can help the Folger and allow us to say thank you!

Our limited-edition face masks are comfortable, machine washable, and reusable. Made with quality, breathable fabric, these masks have a durable polyester outer layer, a soft inner layer of cotton for maximum comfort, and adjustable straps, and nosepiece for a close fit. These masks come in one size suitable for adults and children ages 10 and up.

Want to send a mask to a friend? Contact Elizabeth Stevens at 202.675.0359 or estevens@folger.edu to coordinate delivery.


Maximum of two masks per donor. Please allow 2-3 weeks after making your gift for delivery.

*Donors itemizing their contribution are advised that per IRS guidelines the charitable portion of your donation must be reduced by the fair market value of the Folger Mask, $10.00 each. That amount, multiplied by the number of masks you receive, should be deducted from the value of your gift. If your gift is greater than or equal to $56.00 per mask, the full amount of your gift is tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Please note that this face covering is not a medically graded mask nor intended to be Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
