    About Us

    Fairfax Library Foundation is a nonprofit organization with the mission to enhance Fairfax County Public Library programs and services.

    Libraries are the great equalizers in society. A place where everyone, regardless of income, birthplace, or education, is invited to expand his or her mind and access critical community resources. To all who live, work and study in Fairfax County, the library offers the opportunity to access resources, deepen their education, and participate in community events.
    But public funding to Fairfax County Public Library is less than 1% of every tax dollar. That’s where Fairfax Library Foundation comes in—to provide vital funding for library programs like Ready to Read Early Literacy Outreach, 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten, Changing Lives Through Literature, Scholarships to library staff and volunteers, the New American Initiative, Summer Reading, author presentations, and books and materials for the collection. These are valuable programs that aim to raise up our neighbors with the greatest need. Without donors to Fairfax Library Foundation, these programs would not be possible.

    With increasing demands on our libraries and a tightening of the budget, it is more critical now than ever before that Fairfax Library Foundation cultivates not just new donors, but new partners.

    Donations to the library through Fairfax Library Foundation are tax-deductible.
