The American Trust for the British Library is a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to promote and support the work of one of the world’s greatest research libraries. The Trust was founded in 1979 and is supported through the generosity of its wide membership in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Supporters from the US can make a tax deductible gift to the American Trust for the British Library, a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. The Trust raises funds to support acquisitions, conservation and other important projects, and those giving $100 or more enjoy an attractive package of benefits.

Recent grants have supported the Library’s Conservation Center, an art history internship for a PhD candidate from Harvard University, and the Eccles Center for American Studies.
