Community Fundraising Campaign
We asked our community to come together, and help us raise the final necessary funds to begin this project. And you did it!
Money raised through this Community Fundraising Campaign will be used for capital construction costs, as well as the creation of an endowment fund. Investment earnings from the endowment fund will contribute to the operating costs of the new Pictou Library in perpetuity.
We have reached an important fundraising goal, but you can still contribute! We gratefully accept donations towards this project, and cannot thank you enough for your support!
Your donations are an investment towards a lifetime of opportunities for you, your family, and the entire community.
