Endowments for the University Libraries

Endowed funds support activities not just for one year, or even one generation, but forever. Endowments are invested to ensure they can sustain current and future needs. Donors to the library have established endowments to permanently fund critical faculty positions, student scholarships, and to support acquisitions in specific subject areas like Southwest research, women’s studies, and science and engineering disciplines.

These funds welcome your endorsement, or you are invited to create your own endowment to support your favored program area.
