Putnam Endowment for Ethnology Collections

In 2000, the Burke Museum established the Putnam Endowment for Ethnology Collections. As was John's wish, this endowment will provide the Ethnology division with financial resources far into the future. Thanks to the generosity of a few longtime supporters, we have already received over $120,000 in gifts. For more information about donating to the endowment, please contact Louise Kincaid at (206) 543-5689 or via email at lkincaid@u.washington.edu.
