The Foundation sells Maxwell Street-themed items on its website, and accepts donations of Maxwell Street artifacts and memorabilia for its archive and collection. The Foundation provides research in its archive upon request, for a donation. The Foundation assists new research on historic or contemporary aspects of Maxwell Street and the Market.
