Small donations to Awesome Libraries can make a huge impact on local communities. When great ideas fall outside the scope of traditional organizations and fundraising, we want to be there to help. Help us to fund innovative and high-impact library projects around the globe.

Awesome Libraries Trustees meet quarterly to award $1,000 USD grants to libraries, non-profits, international NGOs, and community organizers. If you are interested in helping to kick-start library projects that embody the principles of diversity, inclusivity, creativity, and risk-taking to meet a community’s needs, please join us as a donor today.

They provide fiscal sponsorship to the Awesome Libraries chapter and handle both the processing of donations and the distribution of our grants. FEIN 81-4351204
