About Us

The Wellesley Free Library Foundation (Library Foundation) is a 501(c)(3) organization established in 2008 to raisephilanthropic funds to support the programs and innovations that make our town’s library special. This strong public/private partnership is the reason the Wellesley Free Library continues to be an outstanding resource and point of pride for the community.

In addition to the annual fundraising efforts that feature pursuing support from individuals, families, corporations and foundations through personal solicitation for major and leadership gifts, an annual fund, and a biennial gala, the Library Foundation currently is engaging in a $1 million capital campaign to renovate the Library and grow our endowment.

Our current endowments exceed $4 million (mainly restricted funds).  In recent years, the Library Foundation’s average annual grant to the Library from ongoing fundraising activities has exceeded $100,000. Additional information on the Library Foundation is available here: https://www.wellesleyfreelibrary.org/wfl-foundation/1-about-the-wfl-foundation/
