Don't give it to the national. You'll never see it again. Sorry if I sound blunt, but it's the truth.

I would donate the paper items to the university and do the personal loan thing. That way they will be preserved and you can still get to them if you so desire. I don't think the chapter would be offended - as you said, they most likely don't have the ability to keep them as they should be kept as far as the paper not falling apart .

Hang onto the badge until you see what your niece decides to do. If she pledges ABC, great. If not - one of our chapters had an alumna donate her badge to the chapter and there is now a yearly award in her name. Perhaps you would like to do something like that. If not, and you want to keep the badge as a memento of your mom - do so and don't feel guilty.
It is all 33girl's fault. ~DrPhil
