Giving Opportunities

In 2016, the Friends established an endowed fund through the UNC Foundation. The $25,000 goal for the Friends of the Libraries Endowment was achieved in 2023. Friends are encouraged to help the endowment grow and enhance the programs, collections, and facilities of UNC Libraries. 

To donate to the endowed fund, visit the Libraries donation page and choose "Friends of the Library Endowment" from the Designation drop-down.
