Every year parents of current students are invited to make a donation to Bishop’s Library. Donations are used to purchase acquisitions in the library so that students benefit directly from the gifts in the form of more books, periodicals, journals and electronic subscriptions. Over the past 11 years, parents have donated an average of $35,000 each year. The Parents Annual Fund constitutes an indispensable part of the library’s acquisitions budget. For more information on making a donation, please view the Bishop’s University Alumni & Friends website.
