We’re counting down the days to April 23 - May 7, 2020 and Idaho Gives 2020. We need your help to make our campaign a success, and we’ve included a few easy ways that you can support us.

Share and share alike. Online days of giving are successful because of our own networks. 

Be socially (media) active. Use your social media networks: post on Facebook, tweet about Idaho Gives 2020, and share your love for your particular passion, whether it’s education, health care, animals, or the arts. Ask others to do the same.

Become a fundraising champion. Everyone loves a champion, including us! We really need fundraising champions to help drive people to our Idaho Gives 2020 profile on April 23 - May 7, 2020. 

Contact us for more information on how to become a fundraising champion!

Thank you in advance for your support!

Our Art Party Fundraiser, the Foundation's FIRST fundraising event, was a huge success! Not only did we have a phenomenal time, we were also able to raise awareness and money to support our Meridian Library District. Thank you to those who were able to come out and join us, as well as the numerous businesses who donated silent auction items, Crosswinds Realty who sponsored the catering, Swire Coca-Cola for donating sodas & waters, The Idaho Wine Commission for donating wine, and Cowgirls for providing bartending services. We could not reach our goals without the generous support of our amazing community!

Huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out to the Summer Reading Kickoff on May 31st! 

The Foundation's "Summer Fun" raffle baskets generated $300 in tickets sales with items generously donated by Roaring Springs, Code Ninjas Meridian, Wahooz, ToyTown, Chick-Fil-A Village Meridian, Children's Museum of Idaho, and Usborne Books.

The results are in from our Food Fundraiser Nite at Chipotle; the Meridian Library Foundation will receive a check for $206.60 simply because you chose to eat out and skip the dishes! Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the Meridian Library Foundation!

Thank you to everyone who joined us on August 5th at Panda Express; 20% of the evening's proceeds will be donated to the Meridian Library Foundation.
