Monetary gifts

Gifts of cash, assets, and securities are greatly appreciated by the University Library. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about how the University Library fits in your giving priorities. Please contact the Director of Development (, 515 294-0431 to discuss your individual interests and needs. Make a gift online.


Endowments enable the University Library to benefit from your gift in perpetuity. These named giving opportunities require a minimum commitment of $10,000, but can benefit any number of library functions and projects, from collections to preservation to instruction.

Matching Gifts

Many employers have a matching gift program that multiplies the gifts their employees make to institutions of higher education. Given through a matching gift program, your gift can have double or triple the impact.

Memorial Gifts

You may choose to direct memorials to the University Library. Gifts in memory or honor of a friend or loved one may be used to fund one or more of a variety of needs of the Library. The most obvious is that a minimum contribution of $50 will purchase a memorial library book. The book will be marked with a special bookplate indicating the honoree or the donor. For other memorial ideas, please contact the Director of Development (, 515 294-0431.
