The premier philanthropic group of University Library takes its name from the family whose generosity established the Charles Deering Library. Today, committed donors join new generations of the Deering and McCormick families in the same spirit of giving, sustaining the Library as the intellectual crossroads of Northwestern.

 Membership in the Deering Society is extended to those who make contributions of $1,000 or more annually. A gift at this level also qualifies you for membership in the Northwestern University Leadership Circle, a University-wide giving society.

To learn more about the Library, our plans to renovate and transform Deering Library, or the many ways in which your contributions help advance our mission, please contact the University Library director of development.
