President's Circle

Membership

The President’s Circle recognizes individuals or couples who make a cumulative charitable gift of $1,000 or more each year. These generous gifts are invested in three critical areas – public programs, research fellowships, and the preservation of the Library’s collections.

Public programs include exhibitions and lectures which are offered at no charge to the public. Research fellowships attract young and promising scholars from around the world to come to Kansas City and use the Linda Hall Library’s extensive collections. The work of the Library’s preservation staff ensures the longevity of the collections that support scholarly research and provide a foundation for public programs.

This work is possible thanks to the generosity of donors and President’s Circle members. Members enjoy exclusive benefits throughout the year.
