Donate to Special Collections

Student working in Special Collections

Since its founding, the Smith College Library has been shaped and strengthened through the generosity of thousands of individuals who, through the decades, have generously supported it. The rich and diverse collections in our Special Collections, as well as the historic buildings that hold them, are the result of the thought and effort of generations of loyal alumnae, faculty, librarians and archivists, and friends of the college.

Materials and Collections

Donations of collections or single items that directly support or complement the collections should be brought to the attention of the appropriate curator. If you are uncertain which curator is most appropriate, contact the Director of Special Collections, Elizabeth Myers,

Online Giving Form: The new form saves time and simplifies the giving process. One big change is that you will be asked to enter the gift amount with credit card information before you can select the gift designation. If you do not see the fund or collection you want in the pull down “Optional Designation” menu, you can write it in on the box provided.

Your contribution is tax-deductible. Thank you!
