Working in the real world, I find that, donors are fundamental to the wellbeing of an archival programme, especially if you consider that not all creators are donors and not all donors are creators.

However, we did not dedicate much time to talking about donors in class. Working in the real world, I find that, donors are fundamental to the wellbeing of an archival programme, especially if you consider that not all creators are donors and not all donors are creators. Archives can receive donations from creators, but these gifts may also come from family members, friends or total strangers who just happened to enjoy collecting materials about someone or something. Of all of your stakeholders, donors are the lifeblood of the archives and they are worth cultivating before, during and after they have donated materials.
