Make a donation

None of what the Libraries do can be achieved without the generosity of our donors – whether you are a one-time supporter or a lifetime Patron. Philanthropy from individuals, companies, trusts or foundations helps us to preserve our historic buildings, build new libraries, curate exhibitions, conserve and study the collections, acquire new items and improve our outreach programmes.

By leaving a legacy to us in your will, you will safeguard the work of the Bodleian Libraries for the future. In gratitude for your gift, we will invite you to become a member of Bodley’s Circle for exclusive access to special events and other benefits. Please contact development@bodleian.ox.ac.uk for more details.

The Bodleian Libraries welcomes donations from people who want to help us safeguard the treasures of the past for current and future generations. We hope you will join us in this important endeavour.
