Friends of CCPL Fall Giving Campaign

Sept. 3 - Dec. 3, 2019

Last year, over 60,000 organizations participated in Giving Tuesday — the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. 

This year, the Friends of CCPL are preparing for Giving Tuesday, December 3, 2019, through a campaign supporting early childhood development and literacy. 

The movement will launch September 3, 2019 on CCPL’s social media and in all CCPL locations!

We invite you to be a part of this year’s Giving Tuesday campaign by making a donation to support Chesterfield’s children and the library professionals that serve them, by becoming a Friends member attending our special Fall Event with Mrs. Theresa Walker, by following CCPL’s Facebook and Instagram accounts for campaign updates or signing up for CCPL’s monthly newsletter to stay in the loop!

CCPL Development Services department exists to support the mission and goals of the library through advocacy, stewardship and fundraising.

Why Donations Are Important

Why give? Don’t my tax dollars support the library? Supplemental funding helps address and support unmet needs of the community.

Your library tax contribution is $26.18 per person for the whole year. This consists of 1% of the county budget.

Helping Us Help You

Citizens of Chesterfield County are seeking more from our libraries, and these advanced services are not fulfilled through county funding. Development Services directs contributions toward special projects, materials, facilities, and programs benefiting the community that the library could not otherwise afford through its annual operating budget.

Join Us

We invite you to join our story by supporting this community’s educational lifeline. Your investment ensures that CCPL will be providing impactful services and resources both now and for generations to come.

Gifts of all sizes can truly make a difference:

  • $100
  • $50
  • $25 provides a month of early literacy story times.
