How You Can Help


We welcome you as a volunteer to the archive center to help us preserve RSD’s past for the future. Together we can be creative partners.

If you’d like to share your RSD alumni stories and/or help archive center staff to identify people and events in photos, please contact us.

Donate to Our Collection

Thank you for considering a donation. Please contact us with specific details of the item(s) you would like to donate.

We will evaluate items offered to the archive center for acceptability into our collection. Since our staff is small, the evaluation process can take several weeks to complete. Providing us with detailed information about the history of the item(s) will aid the evaluation process. If we accept an item into our collection, you will be notified and provided with an agreement transferring ownership of the item to the Rochester School for the Deaf. If an item is not accepted into our collection arrangements will be made to return it to the donor.
