The Goodnow Library Foundation

The Goodnow Library Foundation was created in 2008 to support The Goodnow Library’s critical needs. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization; Tax ID 45-0589881. All donations are tax-deductible.

The Foundation works in tandem with the Library Director Esmé Green, Library Trustees, Sudbury town officials and The Friends of the Goodnow Library. It focuses on long-term capital projects, events and activities tied to the Library’s mission and long-range goals.

The Goodnow Library is supported by various funding sources including private gifts from individuals, foundations, and corporate partners.  As the Library’s expenses continue to grow, private gifts are more important than ever to meet the demands of the 21st century – capital improvements, technology upgrades and physical refurbishments and renovations.

Make a donation today to allow us to continue to support the Goodnow Library.
