Skip to content Keep our Libraries strong this Library Giving Day – The Seattle Public Library Foundation

On April 23, The Seattle Public Library Foundation will celebrate the second Library Giving Day, a national online giving event focused on library philanthropy.

Libraries continue to serve the community with critical online materials and services, from e-audiobooks to Virtual Story Time. They continue to provide patrons with important links to educational materials, entertainment, employment resources, and online tools.

And you can help our neighbors!

Your gift can be put to work now to help kids continue to learn during school closures, and help combat feelings of social isolation with Library programs that inspire and engage.

And now is the best time to give because every gift to The Seattle Public Library Foundation will be doubled up to $25,000, thanks to a generous donor. We’re also adding new match sponsors daily.

Make a gift online here.

If you consider yourself among our most passionate supporters, we invite you to join the fun and try out our new fundraising tool that allows you to create your own campaign and invite friends to donate. For helpful step-by-step instructions on how to set up your campaign, check out our Library Giving Day toolkit.

Your support for the Library comes at a critical time. The Foundation canceled its March fundraising luncheon, which was anticipated to help the Library with $450,000 in funding for Library collections and programs. That brings added significance to Library Giving Day.

Friends like you have always kept our libraries strong. With your help, you’re ensuring our Library can be there for our Seattle neighbors today, tomorrow, and forever!

Thank you for your support! Give now at
