You can help by making a gift, either individually or through an alumni class. Gerald "Bummy" Burstein, Class of 1950, who is an ardent supporter of his alma mater, is leading the way on this ambitious yet vital project through his generous gift. The Classes of 1958, 1959, 1962, and 1965 have made substantial pledges of support, and other classes are following their example.
Your Class, Fraternity, Sorority, Organization or Business can do the same by making a financial contribution to the Gallaudet University Museum Donations Fund (#3350.)
To learn how to make a contribution, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
If you wish to have any representative of the Museum to meet with or come to your Class Reunion, Organization, and your GUAA Chapter to give a presentation about the goals and vision of the National Deaf Life Museum, please contact the Executive Director of Gallaudet University Alumni Association (GUAA), Samuel Sonnenstrahl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
