OLA Annual Campaign - 2020-21: OLA General Fund

We are asking members and partners to donate to the OLA General Fund. Our goal is $10,000, and with your support we know we can make it!

Help OLA continue to build community, to provide quality professional development programming, and to support the library sector in Canada.

How will your donation help OLA and the people who work in or for libraries?

When you donate to the OLA General Fund, you help us continue to support and strengthen the library sector during this challenging time. Here are just some of the ways your contribution will help:

  • Providing more interactive engagement opportunities like our OnLibChats, a free forum for library people to connect, ask questions, and share knowledge.
  • Adapting our in-person conferences and educational offerings to be delivered in a virtual, interactive format.
  • Extending complimentary membership and access to OLA programs to members of the library community who face barriers in participating.
  • Enabling OLA to invest important initiatives such as OLA’s Diversity and Inclusion Training and Plan.

OLA is 121 years old – we have been through tough times in the past, and it has been the belief in the association by the membership and partners that has ensured the resilience and vitality of the OLA. Your support and your ideas are welcome and appreciated!
