This study was carried out to ascertain the trends of donations to Trinity Theological Seminary and Ghana Christian University College libraries, all in Ghana, and how these donations have affected the collection development and service delivery of these libraries. Two (2) head librarians and two (2) assistant librarians from these institutional libraries participated in the study. A qualitative research design was employed to collect data for the study and the data were analyzed by thematic analysis. Findings indicated that these two university libraries received donations on regular basis from their partners. It was established that majority of the materials received were in the area of theology and that they received fewer donations in the other subject areas offered in the Universities.
