Join thousands of alumni and friends in supporting a world-class, research library!

Empower: The Campaign for Northeastern University is raising funds to support students, faculty, and innovation in research on health, sustainability, and security.  These priorities intersect at the library, a hub of scholarship and creative endeavor.

Our supporters ensure that we can meet the demands of the Northeastern community in our resources and collections, digital scholarship initiatives, archives and special collections, and space planning.

Gifts of Books

Snell Library does not normally accept gifts of books or other print materials due to severe space constraints and the transition to electronic information resources. The Library does accept selected organizational records and personal papers.  For more information see Gift Books.

More Ways to Give

For giving by phone, payroll dedictions, matching gifts, gifts of stock, and IRA rollovers, see Northeastern's Ways of Giving website. 

Endowments and Planned Giving

  • An endowment guarantees Northeastern University Libraries' long-term excellence. Generation after generation, these funds ensure that students, faculty, alumni and researchers have the services and resources to reach their full potential. Endowed funds are invested by the university to generate annual income in perpetuity for the purpose you specify. 
  • A planned gift can support the vision of the Northeastern University Libraries while helping you meet your own personal and philanthropic goals. 

Directing Your Gift

The library provides the opportunity for donors to participate in our digital bookplate program or support our current priority projects.
