    contributed by / with

    Hi,

    I wanted to ask you for your help with this sentence i.e. the proper way of saying that someone contributed to something with/by.. or some other solution would be the correct one..

    We take this opportunity to express our gratitude to
    institutions, which have contributed to the realization of the exhibition by/ with their objects, paintings, books and documentation.

    Thank you in advance for all your help,

    Aleksandra

    I am not a teacher.


    I will go with "With" if the books they had contributed were actually there at the exhibition.

    I would use "with" also. I would also delete the comma after "institutions". The following relative clause is defining.
