Invest in America's Libraries
Library Champions are among the greatest proponents of America's libraries. Their gifts help every child, young adult or adult who walks through a door at a library or utilizes online library resources from home or school.
Champion contributions support ALA’s efforts to provide free public awareness materials and resources directly to libraries, and to promote national initiatives such as National Library Week and Library Card Sign-Up Month. These special initiatives have been designed to increase public awareness of the importance of libraries as great democratic institutions, serving people of every age, income level, location, ethnicity or physical ability.
When an individual, company or foundation becomes a Library Champion, they make a positive impact on libraries and the lives of their community members every day. At libraries, children overcome hurdles and become stronger readers. Seniors and families who are living on less access information and advice. Job seekers find the support, career skills, and internet access they need. Students and faculty consult with library personnel to enrich their research.
Individuals, companies and foundations can become a Library Champion by making a $5,000 contribution or more to support ALA's public awareness and advocacy programs.
In recognition of their support, Library Champions receive a wide array of benefits, including:
- Special discounts on ALA publishing and conference products and services.
- Invitations to special events.
- ALA membership benefits.
- Recognition online and on the Wall of Library Champions at the ALA Annual Conference.
- Ability to use ALA logo on company materials.
- and so much more!
