Gifts and Donations

As the component of the University that touches each student and faculty or staff member, as well as countless others across our communities, there is no more critical element to our institution and its scholarship than the University Libraries. In order to grow resources for all Library users and acquire, preserve and provide access to materials, external funding to the Libraries is vital and needed now more than ever.

Gifts to the University Libraries are investments, not only in the future of the Libraries, but in the future of our entire University and the community. Such gifts can come in many forms, including annual contributions, gifts of endowment, gifts of personal holdings and planned gifts. In addition, numerous naming opportunities are available within McWherter Library, that allow you to leave a lasting affirmation of your support, while providing critical assistance to the Libraries.

  • Jennifer Schnabel, Assistant to the Dean for Community Engagement at 901-678-8210 or jschnbel@memphis.edu
