Annual Giving

The Durham Library Foundation receives annual support from generous donors who share a fundamental belief that public libraries are among the most important institutions in American Society. An annual gift helps provide programs and services not afforded through the county’s annual budget. Annual funds also support Foundation operations that enable us to develop more resources in support of our libraries.

We believe Foundation donors are visionaries living the conviction that free access to information, programs, and services is a linchpin to democracy. We accept a broad range of contributions, and every gift helps Durham Libraries stay relevant, vibrant, and enjoyed by all. We cannot thank you enough.

The donor is entitled to an income tax deduction of the entire amount of the gift, providing deductions are itemized and do not exceed certain limits. Please consult your tax advisor.

Donors who give $1,000+ will become 2019-2020 members of the Champions of Literacy category, which includes donor recognition and invitations to two special events.

The health of our civilization, the depth of our awareness about the underpinnings of our culture and our concern for the future can all be tested by how well we support our libraries.
