25 for 25 Challenge Grant


Wilton Library Launches 
'25 for 25' Challenge Grant


We need your help!

In this year's budgeting process, the Library was challenged by the Town of Wilton to raise $25,000 in additional funding which would be matched by the Town, thereby reaching Wilton Library's original budget request. The shortfall of $50,000 in the library's Fiscal 2018-2019 budget is crucial to the library's operations and to providing what the community expects.

To raise the needed funding, the Library has launched its '25 for 25' Challenge Grant Campaign, asking people to donate $25 or more, from September 25 through October 25. Once this goal has been reached, the Town can release the additional matching funds.

Wilton Library Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit association, we are not a public library. The Library receives its funding in part from the Town for operations of the building.  25% of its remaining budget is gained through the library's fundraising efforts which go directly to the materials that are on the shelves, plus programs such as Human Library, author talks, literary lectures and seminars, as well as documentary films, concerts, technology, services and so much more.

Because of the Town's challenging budget year, we are launching our '25 for 25' Campaign which is a critical piece in securing our operational funds.  If 1,000 people donate just $25 each, we would be at our goal for this particular initiative.
