Organization and alumni donations

All donation proceeds go to the Gallaudet Museum Donations Fund.

You can help by making a gift, either individually or through an alumni class. Gerald “Bummy” Burstein, Class of 1950, an ardent supporter of his alma mater, led this ambitious yet vital project through his generous gift. Additionally, the Classes of 1958, 1959, 1962, and 1965 have made substantial pledges of support, and other classes are following their example.

We welcome and appreciate your support for the National Deaf Life Museum at Gallaudet University. If you have any questions, please contact us.
