Consider a Gift to MLA

Annual giving is an important measure of members’ attitudes and feelings about the Association. By participating you are showing your support for MLA and its valuable work. The gesture of your support is as important as the size of the gift itself. Any gift, of any size, helps MLA and is greatly appreciated.


Your donation will help ensure a successful and vital future for the Music Library Association. Gifts to MLA may be deductible as charitable contributions for Federal income tax purposes.


Your gift makes a difference! The Music Library Association supports a variety of scholarship through research and publication awards, and other special programs. Giving to MLA is also a wonderful way to honor the living or to remember the deceased. Designate a specific fund or support MLA goals where funds are most needed. Gifts from individuals, organizations, businesses and foundations are critical to our mission.


The value of your contribution can be doubled by you or your spouse/partner’s employer through the matching gift program. Add your voice today to the chorus of support by including your name on the growing roster of contributors

Development funds
Contributions to these funds support the designated purpose either immediately or through growth of a designated investment. Donors can indicate that they prefer a socially-responsible investment vehicle for contributions that are invested. In addition to the MLA Fund, your donations support:
