It’s national libraries week! This is a great opportunity to support libraries across the country by starting a week-long Facebook Fundraiser for our recently launched 501c3, EveryLibrary Institute NFP. It’s easy to do here.
And, the first 25 people who us know that they launched a fundraiser in the form below will recieve an "I Love My Library" enamel pin as a thank you! But, everyone who launches a fundraiser and lets us know here, will receive an "I Love My Library" sticker in the mail.
The EveryLibrary Institute is a 501c3 non-profit that supports the work of EveryLibrary through training, publishing, and fundraising. EveryLibrary is a 501c4 with a proven track record of ensuring long-term sustainable funding for local libraries. In fact, we are spending thousands of dollars every week ensuring that libraries have the support they need to serve their communities. We do this through voter education, pro-bono consulting, training and digital tools, and our digital platforms like saveschoollibrarians.org and action.everylibrary.org where we work with local public and school libraries to run petitions when their funding is threatened. In fact, in the last six years our organizations have ensured over 1.7 billion dollars in stable library funding for local libraries across the country and we've been able to ensure $1,600 in stable library funding for every dollar we raise!
Launching a fundraiser is easy! Just visit the Facebook Fundraisers Page to get yours started.
