Give to the Newberry | Newberry

Give to the Newberry

Last December our community rallied around our mission and staff, contributing a record total to the Annual Fund. That extraordinary generosity allowed us to exceed our fundraising goal for the year.

In order to once again break records, we are aiming to raise $250,000 by December 31.

Your gift supports all the readers, genealogists, scholars, teachers, students, artists, writers, exhibition visitors, seminar participants, and volunteers who are inspired and educated by engaging with the Newberry’s collections, our staff, and each other.

Your gift to the Annual Fund is tied to your membership in the Newberry Associates, President’s Fellows, or Next Chapter. Making a gift here renews your existing membership. For questions about your gift or membership, please contact Vince Firpo at
