Your Support Makes a Difference

Thank you for helping us write success stories!

How do we define success at Foundation for Baltimore County Public Library? Well first, there’s the obvious way — contributions that we are so grateful for, because we know you make a conscious decision to donate based on your values and our mission. We can’t thank you enough for believing in us and trusting us to put your contributions to good use.

More importantly, we also define success by the people who benefit from programs and projects we fund — programs and projects we can only fund with your help.

In 2018, through its Give ’em What They Want Microgrants program, the Foundation funded A Cut Above Book Club. Woodlawn Branch librarians created reading areas at two barbershops in the Woodlawn area. Librarians stocked the shelves with reading materials of interest to their specific clienteles, held story times and took Little Bits Circuitry kits to introduce maker and technology programs offered at the library.

After seeing the librarian reading to young children, talking to older children about what they like to read and signing families up for the Summer Reading Challenge, the owner of Pikasso Kutz was inspired. He started encouraging the children and teens in his shop to read a book at home and bring in a book report on their next visit to receive a free haircut. Many reports have been turned in at every reading level, including reports on books that were provided by the library!

Programs like this would not be possible without the support of donors like you. Want to read even more success stories? You can find them here.

The All In Crowd

Foundation for Baltimore County Public Library invites you to be all in with our All In Crowd! The All In Crowd is the Foundation membership program that gives back to you while you support your local library.

Your support allows the Foundation to continue and increase support of the library. In return, we promise to continue to support you as well — in the many ways we always have, but also in new and exciting ways, like an annual donor appreciation event, exclusive gifts and much more.

Whether you make a one-time gift or break your gift into monthly payments throughout the year, you're helping ensure that we strengthen our community by strengthening our library. We're all in this together, so won't you be all in?

Monthly Gift

You can divide your annual gift into easy, convenient monthly payments that are charged to your credit or debit card each month.

Monthly giving often fits more into the scheme of things for folks who budget their spending on a monthly basis. Designating a monthly amount for charitable giving makes it easier and more convenient to contribute. There are no checks to write, and your affordable monthly payments add up to a substantial annual gift! You decide how much you would like to give monthly, and your tax-deductible charitable donations will be charged to your American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa each month.

To get started with online monthly giving, simply fill out the online donation form and select your donation frequency. You can select both how often and how much you want to give. We'll take care of the rest!
