Endowments to University Libraries

Create a Named Endowment

An endowment is a permanent, named fund that generates on-going income used to support a specific purpose. Endowments can be named for the donor, or in honor/memory of family, friends, mentors, etc. The minimum endowment size is $25,000 and may be paid over five years. Funding priorities include, but are not limited to:

Professorships ($500,000)

Professorships allow the University Libraries to recruit, retain and reward deserving faculty members.

Endowed Positions (starting at $1,000,000)


Library curators specializing in different subject areas teach classes provide hands-on experiences to students, and organize exhibitions

Conservator Position ($1 million)
