The work of the Southern Historical Collection is made possible thanks to the financial contributions of generous friends. Opportunities to donate are many, whether through one-time gifts or by establishing an endowed fund.

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.

For more information, please contact Rich Szary ( or 919-962-8125) or Biff Hollingsworth ( or 919-962-1345). You may also contact the UNC Libraries' Office of Development at 919-843-5660 or make your tax-deductible gift online through the secure Friends giving page.
