Donation FAQs

Why give to the Concord Public Library Foundation?
Dreams are free, but the libraries that inspire them are not. Your support ensures that our library can grow and thrive, and serve our community, for many, many years to come. Thanks to the generous commitment of friends like you, the Concord Library Foundation is able to supplement and enhance the library services provided by the City of Concord — funds which are increasingly limited by budget constraints and the increasing demands of competing City services.
Why do we need a foundation for a tax-supported institution?
The Concord Public Library is a department of the City of Concord, which through the City of Concord budget process provides funding for staff, collections, facilities, and operating expenses.

The Concord Public Library Foundation partners with the private sector to secure funds to support programs and resources that are above and beyond what is included in the City budget. Past successes of the Concord Public Library Foundation include: technology upgrades; upgrades to the Children’s Room; numerous contributions to library furnishings, equipment, and materials; and sponsorship of special projects and events to “promote and champion the library to new and existing audiences.”
