Donations to ALA in support of library programming will be matched two-to-one until Dec. 31, 2017.

If you are reading this page on Programming Librarian — or if you have viewed a Programming Librarian webinar or applied for a grant from ALA's Public Programs Office — then you have benefited from ALA's Cultural Communities Fund (CCF).

Cultural Communities Fund; Because a library reaches far beyond its walls

What is CCF?

Created in 2003, CCF is an endowment to support humanities, civic and STEM programming in libraries of all types.

With help from individual and corporate donors, CCF has grown into an endowment of $1.9 million, crucial funding that supports professional development opportunities, grants and awards, and resources like Programming Librarian.

Now through Dec. 31, 2017, all gifts to CCF will be matched two-to-one, thanks to a generous donor. That means that your $20 will become $60. Your $5 will become $15. Every gift is meaningful, and through the end of 2017, it's three times as meaningful!
