Board of Trustees Endowment Match

Great News! The CLP - Board of Trustees’ Endowment Matching Gift Opportunity—POTENTIAL—continues with $250,000 in additional matching funds. Now you can create a legacy that supports the library services you love for years to come.

Early learning experiences spark curiosity, build confidence and help prepare children for success at school and beyond. That’s why Nosakhere and Eliada Griffin-El bring their sons to the Library to learn, play and explore alongside friends and neighbors. They’re teaching their children to dream big so they can be a part of a thriving community and help change the world.

Since 1895, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has been a place where dreams begin and possibilities are realized. Your gift to the endowment helps ensure Pittsburgh families can count on the Library now and far into the future, so everyone will have the opportunity to turn their dreams into reality.

POTENTIAL matches new endowment gifts and pledges up to $25,000 per household or organization. Matching funds will be available until the pool is depleted.
