A Challenge For BPL Supporters!
One of the Library's Foundation Board members has issued a challenge grant of $1,000 to help fund items on our Library WishList. He is asking supporters in the Birmingham community match it by November 27th, which is #GivingTuesday!
If you donate between now and #GivingTuesday, your donation will be doubled--up to $1,000.
As you may remember from this previous post, #GivingTuesday is a way to transform the giving season by supporting worthy organizations in your community.
So far, we have had five wishes funded on our list and another donor has pledged at least two more.
Thanks to our Board member's challenge grant, you have the opportunity to double the impact of your support – which means your $50 check can become a one hundred dollar investment in the Birmingham Public Library; your $100 commitment can become two hundred dollars invested toward helping us provide the highest quality library service to our citizens for life long learning, cultural enrichment and enjoyment. We appreciate our Foundation Board member for issuing such a generous challenge.
If you're donating online, please type "challenge grant" on the donation page. Also, please make a note of the challenge grant if you're writing a check, which you may mail here:
Birmingham Public Library
2100 Park Place
Birmingham, AL 35203
Thank you for your support!! You are investing not only in the library but in the Birmingham community and we truly appreciate you.
