Donate an Object

Information for Donors

Thank you for your interest in donating an object to the Saugatuck-Douglas History Center and Museum. The Museum cannot accept unsolicited donations without first evaluating the object’s historical significance, condition, and ownership.

Please complete the Donation Evaluation form below and click “submit.” A staff member will respond to your request within 3-5 business days using the contact information provided.

Unfortunately, the Museum cannot accept every object offered for donation. Before you submit the form, ask these questions about your artifact:

1) Does the object relate to the villages of Saugatuck, Douglas, Saugatuck Township or the surrounding area?
2) Is the object intact, or does it have pieces that are falling apart/missing?
3) Do you own the object you wish to donate?

If you can answer “yes” to most or all of these questions, the Museum may be able to accept your donation.
