Friends of the Library Annual Giving

The Friends of VCU Libraries is a circle of annual donors who make and foster gifts in support of VCU Libraries, including both James Branch Cabell Library and Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences. The Friends of the Library also serves as a community gateway to VCU by sponsoring some of the most popular and respected public programs and events in central Virginia.

Giving levels:

  • Friends: $100-$249
  • Sponsors: $250-$499
  • Leadership Circle: $500 and above

Any gift in support of the Friends of VCU Libraries is an unrestricted annual gift, tax deductible as allowed by law. Donors making gifts at the $100 “Friends” annual leadership level or more are eligible to receive library borrowing privileges for personal use and special invitations to Friends-sponsored events.
