Financial Contributions

Advancing Together: Invest in the Future with the University Libraries

Your contributions to the CSUEB University Libraries will have an immediate impact on students and faculty – and there are now more ways to give than ever.

You may also designate your gift for a specific purpose – such as endowments, or as unrestricted funds.

Funds used to establish endowments generate interest that is used according to the agreement in the official Memorandum of Understanding between each donor and the University. Endowments for specific purposes, such as purchasing library materials on general or a specific subject, can be established with a minimum of $25,000. At present, the Library has three endowments:

Unrestricted gifts can also be donated to the Library’s Leadership Fund – these provide the flexibility to address the University library’s highest and most immediate needs, and to seize new opportunities as they arise.

If you would like to celebrate significant events – the birth of a grandchild, a wedding anniversary, a memorial to a loved one – you may make a financial contribution to the Library to commemorate the event or person.

Gifts of less than $100 which are designated for the general purchase of library materials are also gratefully accepted, and will be utilized in the most effective manner possible.

If you are considering a new endowment for the University Library, please contact the University Library Administration Office at (510) 885-3664, or the University Advancement Office at (510) 885-2150.
