About the Foundation

The Jersey City Free Public Library Foundation was established on January 27, 2004 by then-Director Priscilla Gardner to support the mission of the Library: to provide services and materials for the education, enrichment, and entertainment of the people of Jersey City.  Over the years, generous individuals, corporations, and foundations demonstrated their deep commitment to the Jersey City Free Public Library by donating to the Foundation.  Every time you donate to the Jersey City Free Public Library Foundation, you make a difference in the community. Your tax-deductible contribution will help our Library continue serving the diverse and growing Jersey City community, now and long into the future! The Foundation accepts monetary donations, as well as property, securities or real estate, trust arrangements, bequests in wills and as beneficiary of a life insurance policy.  Thank you. Your gift means so much to us.

Contributions may be made online here or mailed to:

  • Jersey City Free Public Library Foundation, Inc.
