Finley Foundation Provides Major Funding of Free Bookmobile for Sixth Straight Year
Written by admin, August 4th, 2017   

The Free Bookmobile of Sonoma County looks forward to another record-breaking year of service to access-challenged people throughout the region thanks to the renewal of major funding by the Ernest L. and Ruth W. Finley Foundation! We are extremely grateful for this generous investment in local literacy that will keep us rolling to the schools, neighborhoods and senior housing where we are needed most. Finley Foundation support has been crucial to our growth in reach and impact, helping us continue our streak of 20% annual gains in service outcomes. Grants like theirs also enable us to focus our attention on growing the value of our service, as we continue to improve the effectiveness of our routes and the quality of books we offer on board.

The Finley Foundation has been a tremendous source of funding for community programs throughout the North Bay since 1985, particularly in the areas of child welfare, health and human services, and arts and culture. Some of their high-profile projects include the Finley Community Center & Aquatic Center and the Social Advocates for Youth Finley Dream Center.
