* Supporting an Existing Special Fund
• Henderson Library Fund (0212): This is a general foundation account supporting the collection budget, furnishings, and general expenses.
A gift of $500 will guarantee that we will purchase one book or other resource each year in perpetuity, with an appropriate book plate and acknowledgment to the donor(s). An informational plate will be added to the book or resource reflecting the name of the donor(s) and, if desired, the name of the person(s) in honor of whom the title was given. The items selected will be within a specific discipline if that is the desire of the donor(s), but the Library will be responsible for selecting the title each year.
For each additional $500 added to the fund we will purchase an additional book or resource annually. Thus if a $500 fund is increased by $1500 the resulting total of $2000 will enable us to add four titles annually.
Those interested in giving annually may choose to support a library subscription to a scholarly journal or electronic database. This is also a good option for anyone who could create an endowment which would earn sufficient annual interest to support the subscription.
The proposed subscriptions must meet the Library's selection criteria for supporting one or more of the university's academic programs. A good example of this is the Veronica Derst fund, which pays for a subscription to the electronic version of the Wall Street Journal. Another example would be supporting the licensing fee of academic or office software used in our computer laboratory by students and faculty.
Gifts of any size are welcome to the Friends of the Henderson Library fund, which supports fund raising activities for the Library and programming of interest to the local community, such as guest lectures, book signing events by authors of note, and exhibits of art and literary achievements drawn from the Library's many collections.
