Gifts of All Kinds and Sizes
Since the very founding of Stanford, its library collections have been shaped and immeasurably enriched by gifts of many kinds. Today, we rely on a combination of endowments, gifts of collections, and cash gifts to supplement and build upon the operational support of the university. Much of what we offer students and researchers is directly the result of donations shaped by the interests and knowledge of the donor. This is an ongoing collaboration and dialogue with supporters that provides means of conveying interest and passion for learning between generations.
