At EveryLibrary Institute (501c3), we're dedicated to building support for library funding across the United States and beyond. We conduct research about the value and importance of libraries. We work to educate the public about the impact of libraries. We train librarians to be better advocates for libraries and library related causes. We create tools, resources, and provide support for the activities of the Nation's First and Only Political Action Committee, EveryLibrary. Through this work we have secured over 1.8 billion dollars in new or renewed funding for libraries, helped to keep dozens of library doors open to the public, and fought for school and public libraries at the local, state, and federal levels. You can find out more about our work in our annual reports available here.
An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs.
Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax deductible component of your membership) to our organization.
If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support.
Thanks for checking to see if your company offers these programs!
