A Letter from the Founders

Dear Friends,

As philanthropists, we are all faced with the challenge of how to “give smart” – how to make informed and impactful decisions with respect to our giving.

This is the driving force behind the Giving Library, an online tool for philanthropists to practically and efficiently explore a large number of giving opportunities.

In this collection of videos, leaders of nonprofit organizations from across the country convey compelling information about each organization’s mission, objectives and needs.

We hope that your visit to the Giving Library will spark discussions with or about these organizations or a greater interest in the issues that they seek to address, and we hope you find the site useful in your own efforts at strategic charitable giving.

Thank you for visiting The Giving Library.


Laura and John Arnold
