Your gift to the Annual Fund supports the Newberry’s efforts to care for a world-renowned collection and make it accessible—free of charge—to thousands of genealogists, artists, scholars, educators, students, and people like you from Chicago and around the globe. The Newberry’s staff, patrons, and friends appreciate your help in making what we do possible.

Donors to the Annual Fund receive membership benefits based on their level of support. We are pleased to recognize donors at the following levels:
