San José Public Library Foundation


Non-Profit/Community Benefit Organizations Educational Services


The San José Public Library Foundation provides advocacy, financial support, and leadership to our public libraries and educational programs throughout San José to create an educated, equitable, and engaged community.

At the heart of our community, our Library provides a place where everyone can learn, create, study, and explore. The San José Public Library Foundation was established in 1987 by a group of community volunteers who understood that a great Library system needed more than public funding.

The Foundation has grown and evolved over the years, but that legacy continues. In nearly 35 years, we have raised nearly $35 million to support SJPL programs, and the Foundation plays a critical role in ensuring that all San José residents can benefit from the innovative programs that rank our Library among the best in the nation.
