Exclusive Sponsorship Opportunities

You can sponsor specific programs and services for Fairfax Library Foundation. These opportunities are exclusive and still afford the benefits of the associated sponsorship level.

Program Areas

BOOKS & MATERIALS – $40,000 The Foundation expands the library’s collection by helping to supply the 23 branches with books and materials to ensure that the largest possible selection is available to all community members.

DIGITAL COLLECTION – $30,000 The Foundation expands the library’s e-book and digital resources collection available to all library card members. The need for the e-book collection grows every year.

CHANGING LIVES THROUGH LITERATURE – $28,000 Changing Lives Through Literature (CLTL) is an alternative to formal court action for first time juvenile offenders and is used in conjunction with probation and parole.  CLTL works like a book group and initiates the first steps of rehabilitation by building offenders’ self-esteem, encouraging critical thinking, fostering an understanding of how actions affect others, and teaching offenders that they are not alone with their troubles.

EARLY LITERACY – $110,000 Ready to Read Early Literacy Outreach brings the first essential skills of reading to preschool aged children (ages 3-5).  Preschoolers in child care centers or Head Start classrooms are introduced to the joys of reading by a trained Outreach representative who visits the children for storytime.  Picture books are given to both the children and their caregivers to take home to extend the benefits of early literacy.

PRESENTATIONS – $70,000 Fairfax Library Foundation contributes funds to many library events, including the Summer Reading Challenge, Fall for the Book, and the Book Club Conference. Over the years, the Foundation has also hosted the Capital Book Festival, the Perspectives Series, All Fairfax Reads, and many author presentations.

SCHOLARSHIPS – $25,000 The Fairfax Library Foundation established a Scholarship Program to enhance the skills and talents of current or future library staff and volunteers in Fairfax County, subsequently enhancing the level of service the library can provide. There are scholarship programs for undergraduate, graduate and continuing education studies.
