We have a Library because of public funding.
We have the Library you want because of donors like you.

Vision & Mission

The Kitsap Regional Library Foundation helps Kitsap Regional Library bring the world to our community. It is our mission to raise and manage financial resources in order to enrich library services and provide support beyond public funds, financially supporting the Library’s mission and vision for our community.

Founded in 1991 and governed by a Board of Directors, the Foundation is a 501(c)(3) corporation qualified to receive tax-deductible donations. We raise money from individuals, foundations, businesses and community organizations to ensure continued support for essential library programs and services not covered by public funds. In fact, these important programs and services are only possible because of donations.

Commitment Statement

It has been said that “A great public library is built on a solid base of public funding. The library foundation raises money from many sources, complementing the commitment the public has already made.” The Kitsap Regional Library Foundation is dedicated to this effort.
