Lodi Public Library Foundation

"Libraries are not made; they grow"
Augustine Birrell

Ways you can help
For almost a decade, libraries throughout California have suffered significant cutbacks in funding. Support given to the Lodi Public Library Foundation by generous individuals, foundations, businesses and other organizations has made a critical difference in the Library’s ability to serve our community.

Contributions to the Foundation
Say “Yes” to supporting the Library and investing in your community. Your tax-deductible contribution can help the Library sustain and enhance services to over 44,000 cardholders as well as countless others who benefit from Library programs and activities.

Estate Planning
Including the Foundation in your estate plan is one way to ensure its work will continue today and benefit generations to come. The LPLF has established a planned giving program to recognize generous individuals who have made a gift through their will, gift annuity, life insurance policy, pooled income fund or through any other estate planning method.

Volunteers are the powerhouses behind the scenes who make the Foundation’s work possible. Consider volunteering for one of the many LPLF committees or joining the LPLF Board. Other ways you can help include assistance with office work, volunteering to assist with special events, such as fundraisers, and serving on a committee.
