The W. R. Poage Legislative Library supports excellence in congressional materials research through numerous endowed funds. A gift in support of these funds provides crucial support for our archives, collections, staffing needs, and outreach programming. We appreciate your support in these areas:

  • Bob Bullock Archive Endowment
    Provides for the long-term preservation of these historic political and personal papers. Friends and former colleagues of Bob Bullock are being asked to keep his legacy alive by providing funds to support the upkeep of this Archive.
  • Hightower Book Fund
    Established in honor of Judge Jack Hightower, this endowment provides funds for the purchase of signed editions to add to the Hightower Collection.
  • Ben Rogers Educational Endowment
    Established by Kay and Lyndon Olson in January 2015 as a permanent endowment to be used for the benefit of the Poage Library. The funds from the endowment shall be used to provide for exhibits and educational programming including, but not limited to, exhibits, guest speakers, forums and student outreach.

If you wish for your gift to make an immediate impact, consider giving to the Standing Committee, an annual giving society dedicated to the financial support of the Poage Library. It provides discretionary funds for the director to use on projects not provided for in the budget.

Or, you may choose to establish your own endowment. We invite you to participate in the future of the Poage Library by making a tax-deductible donation to Baylor University.
