Collection Donation Form

Thank you for your interest in donating documents, images, or artifacts to the Loveland Museum. To assist us in our review, please fully describe your proposed donation by including information about its size, condition, and historical significance, and attach photographs or photocopies of the materials, if possible. To properly give your items attention and consideration, the Museum holds quarterly committee meetings to review proposed donations. If you are leaving your items in our care during the period before the next meeting, you must sign a “Receipt for Items to Be Considered for Gift”. You will be contacted within one week of the committee’s meeting regarding their decision. If the Museum accepts your donation, and you would still like to transfer ownership of your items to us, please be aware that we require you to sign a second document (“Deed of Gift”) that will be sent to you after the committee has met.
