The Foundation for Fresno County Public Library was established as a non-profit charitable organization in 2012. The Foundation serves as the fundraising arm of the Library. Its purpose is to raise money to supplement, not supplant, public funding for the Library.

If you want to make a gift to the Library, your gift goes through the Foundation to provide funding for new facilities, capital improvements, special collections and materials and programs for youth and adults. We work with the Library to identify the ways donors can enhance the Library to meet the changing needs of the community.


To enhance the Library’s ability to serve the community by raising private funds.


The Foundation will increase endowments and total revenues to fund programs that promote children’s literacy.
