Donating to the General Fund

The mission of the Institute Library is to fulfill its historical purpose of “mutual assistance in the attainment of useful knowledge” for its members and the New Haven community at large through literature, civil discourse, and the arts. As a non-profit organization we rely on the generosity of our donors to operate and provide services to the community. Your support is greatly appreciated.
