The Seattle Public Library Foundation

The Seattle Public Library Foundation was established in 1980 by a group of far-sighted citizens who understood that a great Library wouldn’t be possible through public funding alone.

 

The Foundation has continued its original vision of generating private-sector support to supplement tax-based funding. The result has been improved collections, expanded programs, and enhanced services. But the credit for the Foundation’s impact belongs entirely to the people of Seattle. Over the years, thousands of generous individuals, corporations, and foundations have demonstrated their deep commitment to Seattle’s Libraries by donating to the Foundation.
