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 engagement campaign for American libraries. We want to reach every American voter with messages about the value and importance of our nation's great libraries and encourage them to vote to support them.
We know that we can reach 1,000 American voters for every $10 that we raise. We want to reach 2.5 million American voters in the United States in 2020. That's why our goal is to raise $250,000 right now.
You have an opportunity to make a big difference in the lives of millions of Americans who use libraries by making a donation to support libraries in 2020 here.
Your contributions go to support 4 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 library campaigns for political initiatives
- Support or oppose legislation that impact 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 donations allow us to provide all of this at no cost to the libraries and library organizations that we work with!
