Vanderbilt Giving Day 2024: Give. Go. Help. Share.

Jean and Alexander Heard Libraries

Join us in celebrating the spirit of generosity and community on Vanderbilt Giving Day 2024. Every contribution, no matter the size, is a testament to the power of collective action.

When you choose to give to the Jean and Alexander Heard Libraries, your gift will directly support efforts to:

  • Enhance access to knowledge and safeguard the world’s cultural heritage by building and digitally preserving our archival collections,
  • Provide places for contemplative learning and deep collaboration on campus by investing in library spaces that currently accommodate more than 1 million visitors annually,
  • Bolster teaching and learning on campus by embedding librarians in the classroom and providing programs and resources that support students’ educational needs,
  • Engage with the local community by hosting events, exhibitions and other forums that encourage open discourse and showcase the university’s interdisciplinary scholarship.

By giving, you join the entire Commodore community in making a significant impact on our libraries. Your contribution today will not only count toward our Dare to Grow campaign goal, but also fuel our mission for generations to come.

As we continue to build upon our legacy of innovation, inclusivity and trailblazing research, your support is crucial. Together, we can shape the future of our university and make a lasting impact. #VU4LIFE
