The Mill Valley Library Foundation has long established itself as a powerhouse organization in support of one of Mill Valley’s treasures: the Mill Valley Public Library. It has done so in myriad ways, from its establishment of a multi-million-dollar endowment and a Legacy Giving program to creative events that celebrate literature for all ages like the Beyond the Book Bash and the Storybook Ball.
In the spirit of encouraging local philanthropy during the holiday season, foundation leaders are promoting the Foundation’s Annual Appeal, including the $25,000 “Matching Gift Campaign’, and the kinds of programs and services that the Library is able to offer that are funded by MVLF. For example, the foundation and the Friends of the Mill Valley Library jointly provided the funding for the Library’s new ‘WiFi on the Plaza’ service (see image at left).
In 2022, the foundation was able to grant $104,000 to the Library for its programs and services, bringing the total amount granted to the Library by MVLF since 2011 to over $920,000. Information about the foundation’s impact on our community can be found on the Depot Plaza banners that the Foundation has up this month, shared with the Mill Valley Chamber, throughout December.
