Show Your Dedication to the Curious on Giving Tuesday

It’s almost here…the biggest worldwide giving day of the year: #GivingTuesday! In Illinois, we also refer to it as #ILGiveBig. Regardless of what you call it, it’s the one day we get a break from the consumerism of the holidays and give back to our community.
Thanks to a matching grant, new and increased gifts made on November 28 are doubled! In addition, all gifts over $50 receive a Library Foundation mug. It’s a win-win-win. You can give today using this link.
Join us on #GivingTuesday #ILGiveBig to make a long lasting impact for thousands of children, families and adults who depend on their Chicago Public Library for access to knowledge, information, resources, and technology.
You can also help us take advantage of a match through Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. You can set up your own campaign using your Facebook account that benefits the Chicago Public Library Foundation. Donations made using the Facebook platform will be matched. Read the details and instructions here.
Thank you for your support!
