Ways to give
Support Cline Library to help current and future students
When you give to Northern Arizona University, you leave a legacy that enriches student learning for generations to come. Cline Library has several ways in which you can contribute to our library and the future of our students.
Cline Library endowed funds
You can achieve a lasting and beneficial outcome for NAU students, faculty, and staff through an endowed gift to the library. Endowment funds generate ongoing income to support a number of library initiatives and programs such as student scholarships, collections, technology, and library spaces. Give to an existing fund or establish a new endowment for yourself or in honor of a family member or friend.

General collection endowmentsAccordion Closed
Collection endowments may be established to acquire materials in a variety of formats related to a particular subject area.
Fulfill a long-desired philanthropic interest through a planned gift. Your gift may also allow you to increase income, save taxes, and make a legacy gift to the library that might not otherwise be possible. For more information on arranging a planned gift to the library, visit NAU’s Gift Planning page.
General collections gifts
Library staff will gladly discuss gifts of materials that support the university’s curricula and goals, especially hardcover fiction and current scholarly titles in environmental science, global studies and education. The library also acquires films on DVD and music and audio recordings on CD. Magazines and journals, textbooks, and items in poor condition are generally not needed.
Gifts are reviewed for condition and appropriateness with the understanding that the library makes all necessary decisions regarding retention and disposition. The library cannot provide a donor with an item-by-item inventory or, per IRS rules, an appraisal; the responsibility for appraising a gift remains with the donor.
