As we near the end of the Campaign for Tomorrow’s Newberry, we are proud to announce we have reached our $25 million goal! Thanks to generous gifts from our many friends, we have raised over $27 million to date, all of which will be used to help further our mission of preserving a precious cultural heritage and fostering its use.
There is still time for you to join the thousands of donors who have contributed to the Campaign for Tomorrow’s Newberry. The campaign will continue until June 30, 2013, and we encourage you to add your support by making a gift to the Annual Fund.
The Campaign at Work
Thanks to the generosity of many early donors to the campaign, we’ve been able to begin work on several important projects that include
- Installing compact shelving
- Redesigning our website
- Celebrating our 125th anniversary through The Newberry 125 exhibition and our book, The Newberry 125, Stories of Our Collection
- Cataloging more than 30,000 items not previously available to readers, including seventeenth- and eighteenth-century French pamphlets and titles on early modern religion
- Introducing new public programs such as “Conversations at the Newberry”
- Funding new fellowships
Every dollar raised by the campaign will support our collection, our public programs, and our staff, ensuring that we continue to provide our readers with the highest quality service. The campaign’s success will allow us to welcome more scholars to the Newberry, train more educators and students, foster more research, and help disseminate more knowledge. The Campaign for Tomorrow’s Newberry will help guarantee that what has been accomplished here since we opened our doors 125 years ago will continue and grow greater as we move forward in the twenty-first century.
