The Rose Library has been shaped and strengthened through the generosity of thousands of individuals who, through the decades, have generously supported the library. We cannot realize our potential without the support of individuals, corporations, and foundations willing to invest in the Library's future. Funds donated to the collection endowments will create a lasting legacy for generations of future researchers and visitors.
