Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Friends & Foundation of the Rochester Public Library conducts essential fundraising and provides valued programs to enhance and promote the Rochester Public Library.
Contributions to the Friends & Foundation of the RPL augment public support and are used to expand library collections and programs and services; to support capital improvements of library facilities; and to support professional resources, services, and staff. Funds are also raised to demonstrate the viability of innovative projects for which public funds may subsequently be budgeted.
The Friends & Foundation of the RPL raises funds through:
- gifts to an annual fundraising campaign
- special project grants from corporations, individuals, charitable foundations, and government funding sources
- earnings generated by a permanent endowment fund
- individual gifts made through wills and trusts, and
- income from the sale of books and gift items through the Library Store both online and at the Central Library downtown.
