To learn more about the benefits of giving, please review our PLA 2022 Scholarship Donor sheet (PDF).

Your tax-deductible donation will help to ensure the future vitality of the profession and the association. Thank you in advance for your contribution and helping support the advancement of public libraries!

Your gift supports PLA's efforts to strengthen public libraries and the communities they serve

In June 2018, PLA officially launched the Fund for the Future, to develop and support future leaders of America’s public libraries. PLA thanks the nearly 70 members and friends who were founding donors to the Fund for the Future and who continue to support PLA’s work as donors, advocates, and volunteers.

Support the important work of PLA and public libraries by contributing any dollar amount to the Public Library Association Fund for the Future.

Thank you to our current PLA donors! See why others support PLA.
