Give to the Newberry

Why the Newberry? Testimonials from Our Community

The Newberry relies on the generosity of people like you.

Through guided exploration, insightful exhibitions, vibrant public programming, and open access to our collection, we encourage a deeper understanding of our collective humanity. From high school students and scholars from around the globe to artists, genealogists, and our neighbors in Chicago, we welcome all who wish to explore their curiosity.

We invite you to partner with us in this important work by making a gift today.

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
