UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
The library appreciates donations made to enrich our collections in order to support the scholarly teaching and research at the university.
While gifts are free in the sense that the library doesn't have to pay for them, there are processing costs involved. Cataloging, labeling, and ongoing space commitments are just a few of the costs involved for library materials.
A letter of acknowledgement is sent to the donor unless the donor deems this unnecessary. The letter will acknowledge the number of volumes donated, but not each individual title. The donor is responsible for an itemized list if he wants it included in the letter.
The library does not appraise gifts. Donors can find appraisers at the Antiquarian Bookseller's Association of America, the American Booksellers Association or the American Society of Appraisers. For more information consult a tax advisor or the IRS website.
Monetary donations to the Chalmer Davee Library Endowment Fund can be an excellent way to support our collections as well as the services and facilities of the libraries.
