The Insurance Library—which was founded in Boston in 1887—is the country’s first, and only remaining, independent library dedicated solely to the subject of insurance. The Library’s mission as a nonprofit organization is to provide members of the insurance, risk management, and legal communities, and the public, with excellent research resources and services, high-quality educational programming, and events and other opportunities for networking and engagement.

But all of this great work takes money.

The Insurance Library does not receive any public funds. It is supported solely through membership dues, revenue from paid educational programs, event sponsorships and tickets, and, most significantly, through the generosity of donors to our annual fund.

We are grateful to the donors listed below–old and new–who showed their support for this unique institution and its programs by giving generously to the Library’s 2023 Annual Fund Drive, which ended on June 30, 2023.

Members of The Insurance Library’s 1887 Circle–those donors who have given for at least three consecutive years–are designated by a triple asterisk *** .
