The work of the Southern Historical Collection would be sadly curtailed without the financial contributions of generous friends. Opportunities to donate are many. They range from small, but much appreciated, one-time donations to the establishment of ongoing funds named in your honor or for someone important to you or to the SHC.

We would be happy to talk with you about donations to purchase, preserve, and make available SHC materials or to support any number of special projects and activities.

Please contact Curator Tim West ( or Assistant Curator Lynn Holdzkom ( if you are interested in making a financial contribution to the SHC. You may reach us by telephone at 919-962-1345, in person, or by mail. You may also contact the Library Development Office at 919-843-5660.
