Give to the Newberry

Every day our Newberry staff are hard at work. They are registering new readers in the Herget Welcome Center and paging books, maps, and manuscripts in our reading rooms. They are creating free public programs and organizing Adult Education Seminars and prepping for visits from students and teachers. They are busy caring for our massive (and massively impressive) collection. They are stocking the Rosenberg Bookshop, cataloging the latest acquisitions, digitizing items for use online, and training volunteers.

Our donors make all of this possible. 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. For questions about your gift or membership, please contact Vince Firpo at
