The Baker Free Library Foundation is kicking of their creation of an endowment fund for the Library on Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2017!
GivingTuesday, a global movement, encourages charitable giving during the holiday season. In 2017, GivingTuesday on Tuesday 11/28 follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The Foundation is leveraging the power of social media and GivingTuesday to kick off an endowment campaign that would raise funds for the long-term sustainability of the library. Funds will be invested, and over time the interest from these funds will be used to limit the tax burden on Bow residents while continuing to offer a high level of library service.
Two generous Bow businesses, Bogside Publishing and Allied Insurance, have agreed to match donations made to the campaign kick off on Giving Tuesday 11/28. This adds greater value to the contributions made that day - Bogside will match the first $500 raised, and Allied Insurance will match the second $500 raised. Please consider donating to on Giving Tuesday, using the link below by entering the amount you'd like to donate, or donate on any day between now and December 31st! We accept credit cards, checks or cash.
