Support the Press

The University of New Mexico Press is an internationally known and respected publisher, but many people are surprised to learn that the Press, like most nonprofit university presses, needs outside financial support to meet its publishing objectives. While the Press benefits from a few best-selling titles, the majority of its books are intended for specialized and regional audiences. The University of New Mexico Press is committed to providing valuable resources to society, scholarship, and the academic community, but it also strives to be one of the nation’s leading university presses. To accomplish its goals, the Press needs your support.

Your gift to the University of New Mexico Press Sponsorship Program can help make these objectives a reality:

  • Preserve the cultures, languages, and histories of New Mexico and the Southwest

  • Provide educational tools for children and for future generations

  • Disseminate important works of scholarship

Gifts to the University of New Mexico Press are tax deductible as charitable contributions. The Internal Revenue Service Code requires nonprofit organizations to provide donors with a good-faith estimate of the value of any benefits provided as a result of their gifts. Gift options include cash, bequests or memorial gifts, stocks, bonds, real property, and annuities.

Donate online using our secure order form. (From the secondary drop-down menu, please choose either the Friends of UNM Press Fund, to give to our most pressing needs, or choose another fund that you would like to support directly.)
