Giving Tuesday 2020 is here! This year you have many choices about how to make your gift to help support local library services.
Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. Launched in 2012 as a simple idea -- to create a day that encourages people to do good -- the idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
The Community Foundation of Pulaski County is matching donations today. Make a gift to any unrestricted fund at the Community Foundation, and they will match your gift $1 for $1 to support a local organization of your choice.
When making a gift to the Community Foundation, you can choose one of two ways to help local library organizations. Ask the Community Foundation to direct their match either to The Library Fund, which is an endowed fund supporting the Pulaski County Public Library, or to Arrow Head RC&D to be earmarked for Imagination Library of Pulaski County (Arrow Head is the fiscal agent for our local Imagination Library program).
Donate to the Community Foundation online and learn more at https://cfopc.org/donate. You can also stop by the Community Foundation office and drop off your gift in the mailbox located in front of the office. For more information, call the Community Foundation at 946-0906.
You can also donate directly to our local Imagination Library program. Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free, high-quality books to children each month from birth to age 5. We are hosting an online fundraiser on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/donate/405137517188809/ A $25 donation sponsors a year’s worth of books for 1 child, but every little bit helps. Today, Facebook is matching up to $7 million in gifts, so it's a perfect time to give.
If you prefer to send a check, make it out to Arrow Head RC&D and send it to Arrow Head RC&D, PO Box 196, Winamac, IN 46996. Include a note saying that your gift is for Imagination Library.
Finally, we are always accepting gifts to the Pulaski County Public Library's Gift Memorial Fund. This fund provides unrestricted support for library programs, events, and a variety of general needs. An entry is made in the Gift Memorial donation ledger. Make your check out to the Pulaski County Public Library with a note stating that it is for the Gift Memorial Fund, and send it to 121 S Riverside Dr, Winamac, IN 46996.
No matter how you give, your gift will make a difference. A library is only as strong as its community. Thank you for your support.
