The mission of the Toronto Public Library Foundation is to provide essential resources for the enhancement of Toronto Public Library and to allocate funds to priority needs not supported by municipal funding.
The Foundation believes that the character and quality of a city depends on the resources available to its people. We believe that a great library is a fundamental requirement for any city to achieve its full social and economic potential. We believe that Toronto’s Library is vital to the city, and vital to support.
Toronto Public Library Foundation was established in 1997 as a registered charity. Since its inception, Toronto Public Library Foundation has raised over $55 million in support of Toronto Public Library priority needs. The Foundation's long-range goal is to build an endowment fund that will generate sufficient income to support enhanced library programs, collections and services in perpetuity.
The urgent needs for the Library include: improved and expanded collections, enhanced programs and services, upgraded technology, and revitalized community spaces to respond to the changing needs of the people of Toronto.
Our city needs its library. And Toronto's Library needs you.
