Grants & Partnerships

Do you have an idea? Let us know!


The Grants & Partnerships Committee invites inquiries from — and explores partnerships with — community organizations interested in promoting reading and literacy in the Concord area. A key objective of these partnerships is to engage more residents with the resources available at the Concord Public Library, and promote the role that a strong public library plays in our community.

Small grants (generally from $500 to $4,000) from the Concord Public Library Foundation may be available to support such partnerships, as long as the proposed partnership event or initiative is consistent with the Mission of the Concord Public Library Foundation, and grant funds are available.

Current and ongoing projects and events supported through Foundation grants and partnerships include: Concord Reads and Books for Babies, and we are always looking for new partners to support and expand these existing programs, or explore new ones.

Inquiries are welcomed and encouraged. A Letter of Inquiry should include:

  • Organization name
  • Contact person [include telephone number(s) and e-mail address]
  • A description of the event or program idea
  • The amount (if known) of grant support needed

Send your Letter of Inquiry to the Grants & Partnership Committee. Response to a Letter of Inquiry may take 10 to 14 days.
