Colorado Gives Day 2017

Dear Members of the Friends of the Aurora Public Library,

It’s that time of the year again!  For the sixth consecutive year, the Friends of the Aurora Public Library will be participating in COLORADO GIVES DAY ON TUESDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2017.  This one day is very important for the Friends as last year we raised nearly $3,200 in only 24 hours!  This helps us achieve our mission of providing direct financial donations for the great programs and services of the Aurora Public Libraries!  Last year with our support, the Library hosted over 1,800 free programs with over 111,000 attendees – all with the help of financial support from you and the Friends of the Aurora Public Library.  These are programs that would not be possible without your help and are outlined in the Library’s quarterly Program Guide – The Resource!

Last year, nearly $34 million million was raised for over 2,300 non-profits just like ours on COLORADO GIVES DAY – 24 HOURS TO GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE.  Every donation goes further – this year there is also a $1 million Incentive Fund that we will receive a share of – sponsored by Community First Foundation and FirstBank.

This is a very important day for non-profit organizations throughout Colorado – especially small ones like the Friends of the Aurora Public Library!

Each participating non-profit must complete a comprehensive profile that describes their mission and how they accomplish it.  It includes information about all aspects of each non-profit.  You can find our extensive profile at

Any interested donors can make online donations using a credit card through a secure website sponsored by Community First Foundation.  Donations can be prescheduled NOW so that they will occur on Colorado Gives Day (just make sure to check the box for CO Gives Day!).  Don’t procrastinate – schedule your donation now so that it will occur on Tuesday, December 5th!!

**If you prefer to make your donation in person, please place it in the DONATION BOX located at the front registers of The Book Outlet during our regular business hours.  Any amount helps!**

Thank you for your ongoing membership, your patronage at The Book Outlet and your continued support in helping us accomplish our important mission!
