Foundation

The mission of the Milwaukee Public Library Foundation is
to provide essential support through private contributions
for books, materials, programs, and library facilities to
ensure the Milwaukee Public Library's continued standing
as a great library responsive to community needs.

The foundation was established in 1988 and continues its original vision of generating private-sector support to supplement tax-based funding. The result has been improved collections, expanded programs, enhanced services, and renovated buildings. But the credit for the foundation's impact belongs mainly to the people of Milwaukee. Over the years, thousands of generous individuals, corporations, and foundations have demonstrated their deep commitment to the Milwaukee Public Library by donating to the foundation.
