Annual Giving

The Association of Friends and Fellows: Celebrating 75 Years

The Association of Friends and Fellows is the JCB’s annual giving society. Your gift for immediate use supports our vision of universal access to an unmatched collection, providing immediate support for the Library’s core activities: Acquisitions, conservation, digital conversion, research fellowships, academic and public programming, and general operations. 

Associates receive and are recognized by giving circle in our annual print publication, InJCB, and are invited to experience the Library through special collections immersions and exclusive regional gatherings.

Former JCB research fellows who wish to give back to the institution that invested in them early in their careers are invited to join and be recognized at discounted rates.

Special thanks to all who participated in the JCB Associates 75th Anniversary Challenge! Ninety past fellows and former donors contributed enough to leverage the entire $40,000 in matching funds put forth by two generous members of the Library’s Board of Governors in June. Thank you for your steadfast philanthropy to the JCB Library: A tradition of the Association since 1944, and still of utmost importance today.
