Support MLA With Year-end Giving

For those that don’t like to read….

Donate to MLA: This link…a credit card…60 seconds…and Boom! You’re done!

For those that want to take some time to absorb our appeal we have a longer version below:  

Wherever you happen to live and work in this beautiful state – we hope you think about the impact and influence that MLA has had on you and your library over the past year. Great friendships, professional successes, discoveries of help and support, and holding strong to the values that are engrained in our work during these turbulent times.  We love how connected you are to MLA!

We hope you will show your pride in being a part of MLA by contributing a gift of any size that has true meaning and impact on our Michigan library community:

Donate $50 to our Educational Scholarship Fund to help shape the future of a next generation library professional to attend an MLA program.
Donate $100 to our Equity Fund to affirm your commitment to diversity and inclusion as we reduce financial barriers and uplift people of color who will impact and transform the library profession.  
Donate $500 to our Advocacy Resource Fund which allows MLA to educate and oppose any current or future legislation, regulations, or executive orders that infringe upon first amendment rights and intellectual freedom.
Or, Donate what you can to make sure that the values you hold dear never waiver in your professional organization.

Together, your donations will go directly to efforts that matter most for the future of libraries throughout Michigan – advocacy efforts at the legislative level and at our local library and school boards to protect first amendment rights, educational scholarships that support our ever growing field of up and coming library professionals, engagement efforts that nourish our need as a library community to connect, unite and share challenges and successes with each other, and so much more.

Every donation works together to form something extraordinary – and right now is the perfect time to make a difference…even the smallest donation can boost the impact we have each and every day. 

As 2022 comes to a close we’re thankful to the generosity of so many of you that have already stepped up to provide financial and volunteer support to MLA. Thank you for supporting us and thank you for considering a gift to MLA!
