Create Your Legacy
Support the Fund
Philanthropic support is critical to promoting leadership and innovation, enabling the Library to test new ideas, leverage those ideas to scale, and respond to evolving community needs. While city funding provides the Boston Public Library with a strong base of support, gifts at all levels make innovation and expansion of new services and programs possible.
Your legacy gift to the Boston Public Library Fund is an investment in transforming the Boston Public Library’s aspirations into results, and in catapulting us to new heights of innovation and achievement. The Boston Public Library Fund provides vital resources that help us reach out to underserved audiences, fulfill our role as a convener and equalizer, and take calculated risks beyond what is covered by public funding. A legacy gift to the Boston Public Library Fund can turn a brilliant idea into a pilot activity, and that pilot into a program that not only benefits all of our branches, but has the potential to become best practice at libraries nationwide.
