Thank you for considering a gift to Murphy Library!  

Thousands of students, faculty, staff and community users benefit from donor funded projects and programs each year. There are multiple ways you can support the library’s collections, spaces, services, and programs. Choose from the Murphy Library Endowment Fund or the Florence Wing Fund.

The Murphy Library Endowment FundThe Florence Wing Fund
The Murphy Library 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. A strong Library Endowment Fund, built on contributions of all sizes, ensures the continuing excellence of Murphy Library in the 21st century. The Florence Wing Fund has been developed to complement the existing Murphy Library Endowment Fund. It provides a less-restricted mechanism for awarding and distributing funds for short-term needs or bigger projects.
