Giving Tuesday 2019

Have you heard of Giving Tuesday? It’s a global movement that has unleashed the power of people and organizations over the past seven years to transform their communities and the world.

On December 3, 2019, everyone is encouraged to embrace their generosity and to give, collaborate, and do good, especially in their own community.

If you want to help Queens Public Library continue our mission of offering free access to great programs and services, transforming lives, and building strong communities in Queens and New York City, we hope that we can count on your support on Giving Tuesday!

Here’s how you can help QPL on December 3:

Our #GivingTuesday 100 Gift Challenge: We are asking 100 people to make a special, tax-deductible gift of any amount to the Queens Library Foundation on Giving Tuesday. If you would like to be one of those 100 donors, visit on December 3.

Create a Facebook Fundraiser: Visit the Queens Public Library Facebook page and click on the “Create Fundraiser” button near the top.
