Donating to The Seattle Public Library Foundation is a way for people who believe in the power of public libraries to change lives and to help keep our Library strong.

GiveBIG Goes Great!











On behalf of everyone here at the Library and Foundation, we want to thank everyone who was part of the 2017 GiveBIG for the Library! We were thrilled by the response from the community. During the campaign we received over $292,939 from 1,813 donors! What an amazing testament to the power of people who love libraries!

A special thank you to our generous matching donors; more than 20 people stepped forward to offer a challenge match totaling $70,000!

These gifts will go a long way to help expand the Library’s services, programs and collections that enrich the lives of everyone in our community.
