New Library Building

The new library—at The Compass on Shafer Court, at the geographic center and symbolic heart of the Monroe Park campus—offers a once-in-a-generation opportunity for donors. Your investment will touch every single student on our campus. The $10 million Campaign for VCU Libraries augments funding from the Commonwealth of Virginia. These private funds will enhance student-centered library environments and technology. Your gift is a lasting investment in student academic success–for the short term and far into the future. Please make VCU Libraries your philanthropic priority in 2014. 

Investment priorities

  • Named Spaces–Opportunities for support at all levels from small group study rooms to the community auditorium. Named spaces will acknowledge prominently your generosity.
  • Seat a Student–Gift opportunities from $500 to $35,000 for purchases of chairs, tables, carrels, booths, banquettes, the furnishings for private and collaborative study today's students need.
  • Special Collections and Archives Fund–Gifts support the expansion of the Special Collections space, the preservation of items and the purchases of exemplary, rare and cutting-edge materials.
  • Library of the Future Fund–Most 1975 furniture in Cabell Library was still in use 35 years later. Students in 2050 won't have that experience. This fund will anticipate future physical and technology needs.

Gifts to VCU Libraries are tax deductible as allowed by law.
