Support Your Library

Seattle loves its libraries. They enrich the lives of everyone in our community, regardless of age or economic circumstance. 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 to the Library through May 3

The Seattle Foundation’s annual day for community-wide giving is here and it’s more than just a day of giving! This year you can pledge to GiveBIG as early as April 18.

GiveBIG for the Library to support all the great resources and services that the Library provides for everyone in our community. For example, your donation will help buy new picture books for children, fund summer learning programs in our libraries, acquire more ebooks, CDs and DVDs.

Need a bit more inspiration? Every donor counts this year, as we have a generous donor that will give us a special $5,000 matching gift when we reach our goal of 1,200 donors! Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to see how close we are.

NOTE: When you click “Donate Now” on this page, you will be taken directly to the GiveBIG donation page. If you have any issues with the giving page, have questions, or would like to give in a different way, please call the Foundation main line at 206.386.4130.
