Want to increase your impact?
Hi Friend,

If you're considering a year end gift to the Library Foundation and want to make an even greater impact, you can visit our website to see if your employer will match your donation.

Many companies are matching donations at higher rates during the COVID-19 crisis, so this is a great time to give. Here are just a few examples:

  • Apple increased their matching ratio from 1:1 to 2:1.
  • General Mills increased their match to 2:1 and upped their max by 50% to $1,500.
  • Google will match up to $20,000 per employee for an even greater impact.
  • KLA Foundation increased its match from $500 to $10,000 per employee.
  • VMware has doubled its matching gift limit to over $6,000 per employee.

If you work for one of these companies or know someone who does, please share this info and take advantage of these opportunities to increase the impact of your giving!

Thank you for your inspiring feedback!
Thanks to everyone who's taken a few minutes to give us your feedback about why you support the Library. We are so inspired by your responses that we wanted to share a few of them:

(Libraries) are part of the social fabric of our city. - Christy

My earliest memories are of going to the library. It's been a family tradition through the generations. - Marianne

It is critical for any society to have a good library, not just to promote literacy, but also enable residents to seek new knowledge. - Guna

It provides me with access to a wide range of materials and ideas. It brings our community together. - Pamela

Haven't had a chance to respond to our donor survey? We'll keep it open through Monday, November 30. Please share your thoughts!
