WISCONSIN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION FOUNDATION

MISSION

To support the role of Wisconsin libraries as essential institutions.

ACTIVITIES

The WLA Foundation advances its mission by providing financial support for:

  • WLA Awards and Honors 
  • Scholarships for library and continuing education
  • WLA Literary Awards
  • Elizabeth Burr/Worzalla Award
  • Special projects, including studies about libraries and library users
  • Wisconsin Library Heritage Center

YOUR SUPPORT

All members of the WLA are automatically members of the WLA Foundation. However, each organization has a separate Board of Directors and is separately funded. The support of all citizens who value libraries is important if the WLA Foundation is to carry out its mission.

You can support the WLA Foundation through annual giving, planned giving, major gifts, establishing a named fund, participating in special events, or a contribution in honor of a friend, relative, or colleague. Thank you!
