Give to the Newberry

Our work at the Newberry relies on the power of gathering people together to think deeply about the humanities. Our community brings our collection to life through exploration and conversation. The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged all of us at the Newberry to find new ways to continue our work and connect with each other.

We have found innovative ways to engage users in these unprecedented times. Public programs, scholarly activities, and adult education seminars have moved to virtual platforms, allowing us to grow our audiences and welcome participants from around the globe. We are sharing our collection and expertise through popular online videos and social media posts. We continue to enhance our digital offerings to engage audiences, even as we make plans to safely welcome people back to the library.

Everything we do at the Newberry is made possible by those who generously support our work to build a world-class collection and bring it to life. We invite you to join our story and be a part of our extraordinary community of donors.

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
