Support University Libraries

The University of Dayton Libraries support learning, teaching and scholarship through outstanding collections, programs and services. Those who love books, knowledge and libraries have found great satisfaction in supporting the Libraries through charitable giving, tributes, estate planning and volunteer service. We're grateful for their generosity.


Some options for gift designation include:

  • Dean’s Fund for Excellence: Gifts are directed where they are needed the most — conservation, student programs, guest speakers, technology, special exhibitions and more.
