Mission Statement

The Summit County Library Foundation (the Foundation) serves as an advocate for the Summit County Library System (the Library) and provides financial support beyond the Library's normal operating expenditures, when unanticipated needs arise, and for capital projects.

Organization History

The Foundation was established in 1990 to raise funds for the Library, and was granted 501(c)(3) status on August 26, 1991. Since inception, the Foundation provided funds to the Library for various needs where County funding was unavailable.

In September 2010, the existing Foundation Board created a task force to spearhead fundraising efforts for the expansion / construction of the South Branch (Breckenridge) Library. This process resulted in electing a new Foundation Board and approving revised Bylaws in April 2011.

The Foundation provides assistance to the Library by funding programs and expenditures that are unexpected or where County funds are limited or nonexistent, and capital fundraising. The Foundation is working with the Library in anticipation of the next capital project.

The Foundation has an all-volunteer board that provided 408 and 532 volunteer hours during fiscal years ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.
