Ways to Give

You can take an active role in helping us to fill our shelves and enhance our collections by making an annual or a one-time donation, creating an endowment, or pledging a future gift.

Make an Impact Today
One-time and annual gifts are two simple ways to have an immediate impact on the Libraries. Designate the gift to purchase resources for a particular discipline or to assist the Libraries in a project or initiative, or leave it unrestricted, to be used where most needed.

Establish an Endowment
Establishing an endowment is one way to ensure funds are available annually for a particular need. Endowments can be designated by the donor to support Library resources for a specific program within the University or to remain unrestricted to meet the most critical needs. When naming the endowment, a donor may choose to create it in their own name or to honor a loved one or a favorite professor.

Leave a Legacy
Many choose to look toward the future by including a bequest in their will. There are multiple planned giving options. A bequest could be used to create an endowment or to direct funds to a particular area of interest. There are multiple methods to fund a bequest. Information about planned giving is also available on the WVU Foundation’s website.

However you choose to help the WVU Libraries, it will be greatly appreciated. To discuss making a donation, creating an endowment, or writing a bequest, please contact Monte Maxwell, development representative, at (304) 293-0306 or monte.maxwell@mail.wvu.edu.
