Annual Fund

When you support the Library’s innovative programs and services with an annual donation, you help your community dream big.

Did you know that over 80% of our funding comes from generous donors like you? As an independent nonprofit, your support is vital to the Library's mission to engage learners, inspire thinkers and connect diverse communities.

Your gift to the PPL Annual Fund makes our work at the Library possible and ensures that every child and adult who walks through our doors - regardless of economic position, neighborhood or native language - will have the opportunity to grow intellectually and achieve their fullest potential.

Make no mistake about it - when you give to the Annual Fund, you help the over 225,000 individuals who visit the Library each year fulfill their dreams.

For more information on how to make a gift to the Library - of cash, stock, or real property - please reach out to Beth Plummer-Ricci, Director of External Relations, at bricci@provlib.org or 401-455-8074.  Checks can be written to "Providence Public Library" and mailed to Providence Public Library, attn: Beth Plummer-Ricci, 150 Empire Street, Providence, RI 02903.
