Donations & Fundraisers

Show your generosity by supporting the Kahnawake Library

The Importance of Donations

The Kahnawake Library is a grassroots non-profit organization which has relied on community support to keep our doors open since 2003. We receive funding and in kind support from the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake. We also receive funding from Kahnawake’s Community Health Plan Initiative (CHPI) and Mohawk Internet Technologies (MIT). In addition, we receive various forms of support (financial, training, promotion) from the Community Initiatives Fund (CIF), The Kateri Memorial Foundation and The Eastern Door.

All funds raised by the Kahnawake Library go towards various operational expenses, and also towards enhancing library programming, and the purchase of new books and resources for our patrons.
