Giving

In order to preserve the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library and enhance the quality of its unique collections and public programs, the Center and Clark depend on substantial support beyond what the state of California can provide. Private contributions play a key role in enabling us to expand the Clark’s holdings, support innovative research, offer affordable academic programs and performances, and sustain the elegant Library facility and grounds. We currently have opportunities for support in the following areas:

  • Arts on the Grounds performing arts series
  • Book and manuscript acquisitions
  • Chamber Music at the Clark concert series
  • Henry J. Bruman Summer Chamber Music Festival

Most events take place on weekday evenings and weekends, and volunteer shifts typically last four hours or less.
