Travelers Foundation Challenge

Travelers Foundation has issued a ‘challenge’ to Hartford Public Library for this year’s Beyond Words fundraising event. They have already committed $10,000, but have pledged to donate an additional $15,000 as a match for new or increased sponsorships that reach the $15,000 level. Please help the Library meet this challenge by increasing your company’s sponsorship.

Beyond Words is Hartford Public Library’s new signature event, launched in 2016. The Library’s board and leadership team believe this exciting event is the most effective way to showcase the valuable role we play in the Hartford community. It provides a perfect venue for increasing friends and funding in support of the many diverse, transformative programs and services we provide.

This year’s Beyond Words will be held on Wednesday, November 29 at the Hartford Marriott Downtown, where we are expecting more than 500 guests to celebrate with us. Our honorary chair will be Marlene Ibsen, CEO and President of Travelers Foundation. Also at this year’s event, we will be presenting the Caroline M. Hewins Award posthumously to Sharon O’Meara, a longtime HPL advocate and friend, for her support of our Library as well as the greater Hartford community. And like last year, we will have an author, to be announced soon, as our featured speaker.

Please join us. Your sponsorship will make it possible for us, as the model for urban libraries, to continue to do our important work. For more information, contact Gilda Roncari, Director of Donor Relations, at 860-695-6296 or at groncari@hplct.org. Thank you in advance for your support.
