Giving Tuesday is Coming!

By Kate C. RSS Tue, November 21, 2023

With the spirit of giving on our minds, we want to remind you that November 28 is Giving Tuesday! Founded in 2012, Giving Tuesday has grown into a worldwide movement. It is a powerful way for you to continue the warmth and goodwill of Thanksgiving into the rest of the holiday season and has inspired hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity over the past decade.

This Giving Tuesday, join your friends and neighbors in supporting the Free Library of Philadelphia Foundation! The Free Library is one of the most important educational and cultural institutions in Philadelphia. While the City of Philadelphia provides public funds for the operations of the Free Library, it is through the Free Library of Philadelphia Foundation and the generosity of private funding from individuals, foundations, and corporations that the Free Library is able to offer many incredible programs and activities that advance literacy, guide learning, and inspire curiosity.

Please take a moment to reflect on what the Free Library means to you and consider making a tax-deductible gift to the Free Library of Philadelphia. A donation of any size will get you a Free Library keychain, perfect to take along with you as you run your errands this holiday season!


Support the Free Library Foundation


You can also help by telling your friends and family, sharing our posts on social media using the #GivingTuesday hashtag (you can follow the Library at @FreeLibrary and the Foundation at @FreeLibraryFdn), or even starting a social media fundraiser! That’s right — if you’ve got a birthday or other special occasion coming up, you can start your very own crowdfunding campaign to encourage loved ones to support a cause near and dear to your heart — and we hope that’s us! You can do so on Facebook and Instagram, or by creating a group fundraiser or going live!

 Thank you for keeping the Free Library of Philadelphia Foundation in mind, today and every day!
