Support Student Success
The Libraries’ Technology Lending program lends over 300,000 items every year and these services help save students more than $500,000 annually. The Adopt-A-Tech program gives you the chance to support student success and affordability by increasing our ability to lend a variety of items.
With philanthropic support, we can ensure that technology is never a barrier to passing a class, learning a new skill, or affording college. We can build a collection of tech resources for long-term lending so that students don’t have the stress of affording something new, and we can grow our collection of emerging technologies so that all students can gain a competitive advantage, no matter their economic background.
Donations to Adopt-A-Tech will support theLibrary Excellence Endowment, which provides unrestricted funding for the Libraries. Your support will help provide a variety of technology initiatives. Plus, you can help support new initiatives not yet developed. By making a donation, you will have an immediate impact on all NC State students.
Donors to the program will be recognized on our Adopt-A-Tech website.
