The Library has identified four major categories for
endowment support: collection development, equipment,
programming & development, and facility & environmental
needs. The Endowment Fund is a pledge of excellence,
shared by donors, who believe that the Library is a
central part of the teaching and research mission of the
University, and an important educational and business
resource in the community.
Gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law as applied to the circumstances of each donor. The Fund is administered by the Library Department's Endowment & Recognition Committee, and is managed by the UW-L Foundation.
