Be a Library Champion!
The Foundation’s Library Champion Program offers the opportunity for local businesses and organizations to support the Louisville Free Public Library’s programs and collection enhancements that would not be possible without philanthropic funding. The Library Foundation’s contributions support LFPL’s efforts to impact our community and transform quality of life through education, civic engagement, the arts and entertainment.
Annual unrestricted gifts to the Library Foundation are essential for the Foundation’s ability to support the library’s mission and vision as a passionate advocate for literacy and lifelong learning. Please join our community in supporting the LFPL through the Foundation’s Library Champion Program.
All Library Champions receive the following:
- Library Champion window cling to be displayed at your business;
- Recognition on the Library Foundation’s website;
- Recognition in the Library Foundation’s annual report and on donor board at the Main Library;
- Additional opportunities for recognition are based on the level of support as outlined below.
