Mission: The Albuquerque Public Library Foundation raises funds to enrich Library programs, services and facilities.
Challenge: Despite support for libraries in bond elections, economic constraints have made public funding inadequate. The libraries struggle to maintain hours, staffing, collections, programs and operations.
Objective: Develop additional sources of funding, including individual donations, grants and corporate contributions, to restore and revitalize library services and operations for people of all ages and resources.
Strategy: The Foundation offers donors flexible, tax-deductible ways, including memorials and bequests, to have an impact on libraries in their neighborhoods and community and to create a personal legacy.
