Every dollar donated directly supports the Library’s programs and initiatives, bettering the lives of Richland County residents.
The Richland Library Friends and Foundation is the nonprofit arm of Richland Library, Richland County’s nationally recognized, award-winning library system. Your gift to the Friends and Foundation helps the Library battle inequity on multiple fronts—from literacy and workforce development to social services—because increasing access to tools for advancement helps our entire community thrive.
Your Gift Matters
Gifts to the Richland Library Friends and Foundation are fully tax-deductible and are used to support programs and services not covered by the Richland County tax appropriation. By giving to the Richland Library Friends and Foundation, you are leading the charge to fuel innovation through the Friends and Foundation’s four pillars of support—Literacy, Workforce Development, Innovative Programming, and Social Services and Inclusion.
The Richland Library Friends and Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization governed by a Board of Trustees whose mission is to support Richland Library by raising awareness and financial support. While public funding supports basic library operations, private philanthropy through the Friends and Foundation helps to ensure a higher level of service both now and in the future.
