If you would like to honor a loved one, colleague, or friend, please consider doing so while supporting Hagley’s mission to collect, preserve, and interpret the unfolding history of American enterprise. Your gift will enable us to build upon our world-class library collections as well as conserve these treasures for generations to come.

Donation Levels:

In addition, the Library will send an acknowledgment letter and a copy of the bookplate to the donor and honoree.
