The Summit County Library Foundation's mission is to serve as an advocate for the Summit County Library System and to provide financial support beyond the Library's normal operating expenditures, when unanticipated needs arise and for capital projects.

Background Statement

The Foundation was established in 1990 to raise funds for the Summit County Libraries, and was granted 501(c)(3) status on August 26, 1991. Since inception, the Foundation has fueled fundraising efforts for large-scale capital campaigns, like the 2011 South Branch Library renovation in Breckenridge.

The all-volunteer Foundation board provides around 400 volunteer hours each year, enthusiastically supporting the library's mission to discover, connect and inspire. This year, we want to continue to support the library when our community needs its resources most.
