Library of Things & Tool Library | $500 minimum donation
The Library of Things is a collection of “things” ranging from sports equipment to technology to tools that can be borrowed from GPPL. It allows people to explore items before purchasing them, borrow things they may only need to use once, and access things as a community resource. Items donated by businesses will circulate with a sticker or tag thanking you for your donation.
Pretty Fly for a Wi-Fi | $1,300 minimum donation
It costs $1,300 to run one of our mobile hotspots for a year. Help combat the divide between people with internet access and those without for 2023. Our mobile hotspots went out a total of 281 times in 2021 and always have a wait-list. Each mobile hotspot you sponsor will circulate with a sticker thanking you for your donation for a 12-month period.
