Impact Fund: On the Move with CPL!

This year’s Make Your Impact Campaign will focus on reaching out to our community:

On the Move with CPL!

With your help, we will fund a mobile Pop-up Library van that will visit schools, playgrounds, senior housing, farmer’s markets and community events.

Our Make Your Impact campaign officially kicks off November 27th, 2018, part of the nation-wide “Giving Tuesday” movement. Get the wheels rolling and make your donation now!

And remember: your donation may be eligible for a matching gift. Ask if your employer will make your donation have twice the impact!

There are 2 Ways to Donate!

Option 1: Donate Towards a Destination

When you donate, you can select a Destination to make sure the Library knows it’s important to visit there. You can donate any amount, one-time or monthly, and your selection will count as a “vote” towards that destination.



If you chose “Other,” you’ll be able to fill in your Destination during the payment process. And please be specific – you can type “Summer Place,” “The Palm Center,” etc – any destination in town!

More About the Impact Fund

Each year, the Impact Fund campaign will focus on adding something new to the mix for the library and the community. It could be an innovative service, a new building feature, or a unique series of programs. It will be designed to enrich the community and improve your library experience – in other words, an added value above and beyond traditional library services. This annual campaign will also ensure that the Chelmsford Public Library (Adams) and the MacKay Branch receive sufficient funding and continue to thrive.

Please join us by becoming an Annual Campaign donor to maintain and enhance one of Chelmsford’s greatest assets.

Why are we doing this?

Over the last year we’ve talked to past donors and potential future library supporters. The majority of responses suggested that patrons wanted to donate to big projects with concrete goals as they did in creating the Scoboria Greenway.

How much do we hope to raise?

We aim to raise $75,000 over the course of the next year.

Why aren’t town taxes paying for this?

The library’s operating expenses are well-funded by the Town but for new ideas we often look to the Friends of the Library and to community fundraising. Once we can show support for the idea, we are in a better position to request additional funding from the Town.
