Melissa Greenberg, vice president for development at the FLPF, said that $52,000 was raised from an email-based fundraising campaign last month, corresponding with the conclusion of the fiscal year 2012 on June 30.

"It was so, so wonderful," said Greenberg of the campaign, which was originally projected to raise $6,000 for the FLPF, a nonprofit which serves as a private funding source for the Free Library system.
"It was our first time doing this," she said of June's appeal. "It says that there's great opportunity for us."
What will the money be used for?
The monies raised in June will go toward the FLFP's 2012 fundraising goal of $6.2 million, of which $1.35 million is unrestricted funding destined for the FLFP's Annual Fund. Individual contributions comprise 90-percent of the fund, according to Greenberg.
The Annual Fund is used to support various initiatives of the Free Library not funded by city or state money, such as the after-school LEAP program which serves 70,000 students, the summer reading program which serves 60,000 students, and the Author Events series.
"The city pays for basic operations," said Greenberg. "Everything else is funded through the foundation with private money."
Both city and state funding are flat this year, with little adjustment in government contributions. Overall, the library has seen a 19-percent decrease in public funding in the last five years.
Greenberg said that at present, the City of Philadelphia contributes $33.8 million, which goes to employees' salaries, maintenance, and other operations. She noted that private money cannot be used to support staffing, as the jobs are civil service positions.
Currently, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania contributes $8.1 million to the library's budget, which also supports the Library for the Blind.
"We feel we've been very nimble," said Greenberg, in regard to public funding. "Our goal is to keep the libraries open as much as possible."
Climate of NW Philly facilities
While fundraising dollars can go into a general fund, supporters can request that their contribution goes into a "Grass Roots fund" associated with each library. Greenberg said that financial data is still being compiled due to the recent closing of the books for fiscal year 2012, and is not yet available.
...
While the books are still being balanced, Greenberg said she is "incredibly optimistic" about the FLPF's financial prospects for the coming year.
"We will continue to see support and growth as we continue our fundraising," she said.
