When you give a gift to the Kraemer Family Library, you demonstrate your commitment to the Library's role in supporting the curriculum, research and scholarship of UCCS. Your monetary donations or gifts-in-kind make a tremendous difference in our ability to provide students with the print and electronic tools they need to be productive and involved citizens, community leaders and lifelong learners. Your donation will have an immediate and direct impact on the Library and represents a unique and lasting contribution to the Library's excellence. Your gifts are critical to the development of excellence and the support of academic achievement at UCCS.
Cash contributions may be made through currency, check or credit card and are tax deductible. Checks should be issued to "University of Colorado Foundation - Kraemer Library" and mailed to Teri Switzer, Kraemer Family Library, UCCS, 1420 Austin Bluff pkwy, Colorado Springs, CO 80918. Credit card donations may be made online through the CU Foundation.
You may multiply your contribution if your employer matches your donation. Consult your employer to determine if matching gift options are available.
With each $50.00 donation, a bookplate with an inscription will be put into a new book in the subject area of your choice. By participating in Add-a-Book, you may recognize yourself, honor another person or celebrate meaningful events in someone's life while simultaneously supporting the Library. Please provide the specific recognition information with your check.
Gifts of ongoing journal or periodical subscriptions are also welcome. The Library requests that gifts for subscriptions include sufficient funding for a minimum subscription of three years.
Gifts such as books, journals, media or historic materials are significant to the development of the Library. Over the years these donations have helped to develop the size, depth and diversity of the collection. Selection criteria for gift materials are the same as those for purchased materials. In most cases, duplicate materials will not be added to the collection. Gift materials are accepted without stipulations and the library staff reserves the right to determine the ultimate disposition of donated items including disposal.
You may deliver gifts of materials to the Library anytime it is open. Upon delivery, you will be provided a donation form to complete so that a written acknowledgement may be provided. You may request gift plates be attached to materials added to the collection.
Under current tax law, the Library cannot attach a value to materials received through donation. You may assign a value for tax purpose or elect to have the donation independently appraised to establish the value for tax purposes. If you want a detailed inventory by title with the letter of acknowledgement, please submit a list of titles with your donation.
The Library does not have the resources to pick up gift materials from outside campus. Please contact Joan Carlo at 719-255-3293 with any questions.
