How You Can Help
There are many ways to help us outfit Madison Public Library to better serve the community. Your generosity results in equal opportunity access for all, improved literacy, technology skills development and a thriving Madison community for years to come. We accept a broad range of contributions and truly believe that no act of giving is too small. Learn more about each of our giving opportunities below, or view our 2024 Opportunities to Give document.
Gifts to the annual fund support collections, technology, professional development, equity and innovation, and special requests from library leadership.
Wisconsin Book Festival
This year-round celebration of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and other genres brings acclaimed and local authors to Madison for free events that encourage reading and discussions.
We present two fundraising events each year, plus donor recognition events and financial education workshops to help donors make the most of their giving.
Leaving a gift to our foundation demonstrates the ultimate commitment to sustaining the libraries beyond your lifetime. It’s smart, too, because it can also bring financial benefits.
