How to Support the Loras College Library

Endow a Library Collection

wilkie classic film collection

Library collection endowments provide funding streams to help us continue providing needed collections and services for our users. The original amount donated to establish the endowment is invested and never expended. Only the interest generated by the fund is available to be spent, thereby ensuring that funds from our endowments will be available in perpetuity.

Named endowments can be established by an individual or group of donors with a minimum gift of $25,000. Contributions of any size to existing endowments help further their purpose. 

They can be dedicated to an area of study that is important to you, or they can be broadly directed.
