Gifts and Donations

As part of its mission, the Church History Department selectively acquires documents, diaries, letters, photographs, books, and artifacts from all over the world that have broad historical significance to the Church. If you have such materials that you are willing to donate to the Church’s archives, we may be interested in them. Please contact our acquisitions specialists by calling 1-801-240-5696 or using our online contact form.

Please discuss your potential donation with our acquisition specialists before bringing your materials to the Church History Library or one of our international locations. The specialist will work with you to accept your items; they can also offer alternatives for preserving your records should they fall outside our donation guidelines.
