Gifts and Endowments

There are many ways to support the NIU Libraries, the Special Collections and Archives Department, and the collections, programs, and services offered through the RBSC and RHCUA.

NIU Foundation

To make a monetary donation, please contact us for more details. You may choose to donate to existing endowments in Memorial and Endowment Funds or create a new one. Gifts are made through the NIU Foundation. To make an online donation to an existing endowment or memorial fund, visit the NIU Foundation gift portal. To designate a fund, select "more options" and then "direct my donation toward" after entering your donation amount. Contributions of any amount to the library’s Memorial and Endowment Funds are greatly appreciated. In all cases, your donation is tax-deductible.

Friends of the Library

The Friends of the NIU Libraries provide several ways to support library collections and services, including the Library Book Fund. You can also join the Friends of NIU Libraries and receive a quarterly newsletter featuring the collections, staff news, and announcements in the library as well as exclusive invitations to Friends only events. Another way to support the Library is through the Friends of the Library Book Sale.
