Support the Poetry Collection’s General Fund
Gifts from alumni and friends enable the Poetry Collection to continue serving as the library of record for 20th- and 21st-century poetry in English. Your support helps to provide for the acquisition, organization, preservation, digitization and exhibition of books, magazines, journals and important literary archives. Monetary donations are tax deductible and help support the research and teaching missions of the Poetry Collection.
To give to the Poetry Collection’s General Fund, please use the University Libraries’ online donation form and select the "Poetry Collection" under “Use my gift for."
Become a Friend of the Poetry Collection
Throughout its history, the Poetry Collection has had many different kinds of friends, including the thousands of poets whose books and magazines we collect every year, the researchers who travel to Buffalo to use our primary resources, and all who care about the historical preservation of poetry.
Recently, we launched a new fundraising campaign to establish a Friends of the Poetry Collection Society and begin building an endowed Friends of the Poetry Collection Future Fund. As soon as we reach our target amount, this endowed fund will generate a sustainable stream of income to support new acquisitions as well as special projects such as member events and publications.
Please consider making a donation online today and become a Friend of the Poetry Collection.
The Poetry Collection also appreciates gifts of new and used poetry publications. See the University Libraries’ gifts in kind policy for general guidelines.
