Helping Hands Annual Fundraising Campaign


October 2016

Dear Southern Lehigh Area Resident,

As I prepare to launch the library’s annual fundraising campaign, my thoughts are filled with stories of winners or those hoping to be winners, whether it is news of the 2016 Presidential race or the daring athletes competing in the Summer Olympics, those involved are striving for the win. Southern Lehigh Public Library is hoping to be a winner too! I’d like you to consider stepping up as a library champion by making a generous donation to the 2016/2017 Helping Hands Campaign. Your donation will support programs and services for the whole community, so everyone wins!

In appreciation of your generosity, through June 30, 2017, the library would like to include your name in its donor recognition display and on its website at the corresponding giving level listed below. Donations of $50.00 or more will also be honored with a tribute plate in a new item for the library’s collection and donations of $1,000.00 or more will be permanently honored on the library’s Tree of Knowledge. 

thermometer4.25.17$25-$49 Competitor
$50-$249 Honorable Mention
$250-$499 Silver Medalist
$500-$999 Blue Ribbon Winner
$1,000 & up Grand Champion

Please remember to check with your employer and if a Matching Gift Program is offered, include the appropriate form with your donation.

I invite you to share what you like best about the library as well as suggest new ideas for programs, classes, improvements to services and facilities, or additions to the library’s collection of items in the space provided on the donation form below. I promise to give all of the ideas received ample consideration and will try to implement as many as possible.

Thank you for your generosity! Your offer of a helping hand makes you a library champion and will guarantee that your public library continues to provide winning library service for all residents in our community!
