How to Contribute

Cash Gifts

Cash gifts make an immediate impact on the Libraries and Academic Innovation, and maximizes the charitable deduction from your taxable income. Cash gifts may be in the form of outright gifts, payroll deductions, or pledge payments, generally payable within five years of the initial pledge. If your employer offers a matching program, the dollar amount of your gift may be doubled at no additional cost to you.

Planned Giving

Have you considered including the GW Libraries and Academic Innovation in your estate plan through a planned gift?

Our planned giving program offers you the opportunity to combine your charitable interest with estate planning options that often feature favorable tax treatment.  Learn more about our program and your options at http://gwu.planmylegacy.org/

Planned giving often includes estate gifts, such as bequests and gifts of retirement plans and life insurance. But did you know that you can make a planned gift to GW Libraries and Academic Innovation that simultaneously provides lifetime income to you or your beneficiary? Giving instruments such as charitable gift annuities, deferred gift annuities, and charitable remainder trusts can provide significant financial and tax benefits to you while enabling you to give at a level you might not have thought possible.

Donating Materials

Thank you for your interest in donating books.  At this time, we do not accept most materials for our general circulating collections.

However, we are interested in rare and unique materials of historic interest such as diaries, correspondence, manuscripts, and photographs for our special and specialized collections. If you would like to know more about donating materials to the GW Libraries, please contact us by e-mail at speccoll@gwu.edu.

GW Libraries and Academic Innovation extends its gratitude to all donors, including Emeriti faculty and staff, who have donated their archives and collections. Your support significantly benefits all GW students, faculty and staff.

Honor with Books

Your gift to the Honor with Books program pays lasting tribute to a family member, friend, or professor and supports lifelong learning at GW by supporting our collection in the subject area of your choice. For every $100 you donate through the Honor with Books program, a bookplate will be affixed to a book in your designated subject area recognizing your designated honoree. To participate in the program or for more information, contact the Division of Development and Alumni Affairs at (202) 994-8928.
