Facebook Fundraisers for Libraries Now Available!
We’re excited to announce that you can now create your own fundraisers on Facebook to the help the EveryLibrary Institute (501c3) build the resources and tools that libraries need to fight for funding.
We recently launched this 501c3 as companion organization to help us advance a research and programmatic agenda that strengthens the policy framework in partnership for libraries and librarians in the future. The Institute’s 501c3 charter is aligned with EveryLibrary’s c4 mission of building voter support for libraries, but it functions solely within traditional c3 grant eligibility and spending limitations.
These small fundraisers are great opportunities to support the issues and causes you care about. We hope that, if you care about libraries, you’ll consider setting up an EveryLibrary Institute fundraiser that helps us fight for library funding across the United States.
Help us win in November! Get started with a Facebook Fundraiser to support Libraries across the country today!
You can create any number of fundraisers from our Facebook page. Whether it’s your birthday, anniversary, or any other life event you can ask your guests or friends and family to make a donation to your fundraiser for libraries.
Of course, you don’t have to wait for a special occasion. Election day is right around the corner and we are working on supporting 7 campaigns at the ballot box this November as well as getting ready to start working with over a dozen campaigns for the first half of 2018. No matter when or why you set up a fundraiser, we will put your donations to work to support libraries right now!
As the National PAC for libraries, we can support library funding in a number of ways. Your donations allow us to provide pro-bono consulting, tools, and data to libraries in crisis or threatened with closures or defunding. Each week you donations allow us to educate hundreds of thousands of American voters about the importance of libraries making it easier for libraries to win across the country. And of course, through your donations it’s possible to make direct contributions to library ballot campaigns and elections.
In fact, the work that we do with your donations is so effective that every dollar we raise can be turned into over $1,600 of stable library funding through our advocacy and support for libraries at the ballot box. That means that if you help us raise just $100, you will have helped libraries earn over $160,000 in stable yearly funding!
Please consider starting a fundraiser today!
