Marian University accepts donations for archives that support the collection of Marian University’s history; however, no materials will circulate. Consideration will be given to the quality and condition of the material, with primary consideration going to those materials that directly support the institution. It is the donor’s responsibility to get the material to the library. Marian University does not pay for shipping or delivery of donations and will not send employees to pick up materials.
Material we accept:
Gifts are accepted with the understanding that, upon signing the Gift in Kind form, they become the property of Marian University. Marian University reserves the right to make all necessary decisions as to the use, retention, and disposal of donated items. Marian University cannot maintain separate named collections and donor restrictions cannot be honored.
Marian University, as an interested party, cannot place a monetary value on any gift; a professional appraiser must evaluate the gift if its value is over $5,000. The appraisal is the responsibility of the donor since it is the donor who benefits from the tax deduction. Marian University will provide a gift in kind form, but it is the responsibility of the donor to complete the form and forward it to the Office of Institutional Advancement. If the donor brings the completed form with the gift delivery, the library will forward it to the Office of Institutional Advancement on their behalf.
