Libraries 2020 Launches on Giving Tuesday
At EveryLibrary, we know that over 90% of library funding comes from the will of the local voters and the will of the local politicians. That’s why we’re launching Libraries 2020 as the country’s first-ever full-scale national voter campaign for American libraries.
We’re launching the Libraries 2020 campaign on December 3rd (Giving Tuesday) to raise the funding we need to support every library in the United States. You have an opportunity to join us by pledging your Giving Tuesday donation early!
For every $1 donated there is $1,600 returned in stable library funding.
Your contributions go to support four critical activities that ensure that libraries will be funded well into the future.
- Help us make direct contributions to local library campaigns and elections
- Allow us to provide pro-bono tools and resources to libraries for political initiatives
- Support or oppose legislation that impacts libraries’ ability to serve their communities
- Conduct national voter education about the importance and impact of libraries through television, radio, print, and digital media
Your donor pledge allows us to provide all of this at no cost to the libraries and library organizations that we work with!
As a 501(c)4 organization, contributions to EveryLibrary are not tax deductible. However, if you’d like to make a larger tax-deductible donation to the EveryLibrary Institute (our 501c3) to support our research and training for librarians, please visit everylibraryinstitute.org
