Annual Fund


Please consider supporting the Library’s programs and services with an annual donation.

Our mission as a leading urban library, that also provides statewide services, requires that we stay at the forefront of our public’s ever-changing information and learning needs. Public funding provides basic library services. Private donors like you make it possible to provide so much more to so many learners.

Your unrestricted gift to the Annual Fund will help to strengthen collections, support award-winning programs and services, and provide free access to information and opportunities for learning to every Rhode Islander.

Leadership Giving - Conservator Society
Leadership giving of $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund is recognized with membership in the Conservator Society of the Providence Public Library Foundation. Membership offers distinctive privileges and benefits, including invitations to exclusive programs recognizing the interests and dedication to lifelong learning of this special group of donors. Of course, the greatest benefit is the knowledge that your gift will make a difference for more than 1,000,000 visitors each year who turn to Providence Public Library for valuable services.
