Giving to the Foundation

Giving to the Foundation

Your gift to the Waukegan Public Library Foundation supports Literacy 2020: our bold strategic direction to measurably impact literacy among WPL patrons by the year 2020. Every dollar donated supports our work to deliver the classes and services necessary to achieve this goal.

FOUNDATION-LOGO-FINAL-2For many of our learners, literacy is the difference between an independent and a dependent life. Your gift will bridge that gap for our community. Make your gift by contacting Alicia Garcia, Development Manager, at (847) 623-2041 ext. 262, or via email.
