Give to the Newberry

The Newberry is a place for curious people, eager to engage with big ideas. Our collection, staff, programs, and digital tools can reshape our understanding of the past, inform our perceptions of the present, and guide our hopes for the future.

We invite you to support our work by making a gift to the Annual Fund. We aim to raise $100,000 before our fiscal year ends on June 30. With your generosity—and that of nearly 2,000 annual donors—we will continue to inspire research and learning in all Newberry users.

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
