GFPL Foundation News

 The Great Falls Public Library Foundation is excited to announce that their annual Book-A-Thon fundraiser has reached new heights.  As of December 31, 436 donors had given $40,629 for the purchase of juvenile and young adult books and other materials. 
“That’s more than was received for the entire 2015 campaign and the most ever for the December 31 cut off,” said Gail Carter, President of the Foundation.  The Foundation typically receives an additional $3,000-$5,000 after January 1st, which would make this giving year a record-breaking year for the organization.

 The Book-A-Thon began in 1990 and during that first year received $12,966 from 171 donors who were “cold called.”  The fundraiser has since transitioned to a letter campaign and flyer distribution method of raising funds.  Each year one half of the funds raised went toward purchasing juvenile and young adult materials and the other half was invested by the Foundation for the future.  Beginning this year, 100% of the funds raised will go directly for purchasing materials. 

 Library Director Kathy Mora stated, “We simply could not have the caliber of youth collections in our library without the support of the Foundation and our very generous community.  These donations give us more flexibility in budgeting for materials, so all the library’s collections benefit.”
