Establishing an Endowment

Your investment in knowledge will enrich the experience of the entire University of California community.

Library Endowments provide permanent funding for our collections. The Library's current priority is to meet our students and faculty where they are: the digital space. If you are interested in establishing an endowment to support the Library licensing or acquiring digital resources needed to support student success, please contact the Library Development Office. 

Every year income from endowments provides hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of library collections. You can help fund an existing endowment, join with others to start a new endowment, or establish a commemorative endowment to memorialize a loved one or special event. The gift of a broadly directed endowment is especially appreciated. 

For information on establishing or contributing to a subject endowment, please email the Library Development Office or telephone us at 831-459-5870.
