Contributions to the Dean's Fund are put to work immediately to finance the cost of events, programs, giveaways, professional development, technology purchases, and more. The Dean’s fund is an important source of funding for events. Your gift provides the support needed to meet these ongoing needs of students and faculty, helping to enhance their learning experience and engagement with the King Library.
Endowments are created with a gift of $50,000 and the establishment of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) outlining the purpose of the endowment. Gifts under $50,000 are considered pre-endowments, which need to be built up to a minimum balance of $50,000 within five years of being established to become a permanent endowment. Books acquired under each endowment will bear specially designed, individual bookplates created in consultation with the donor.
