NYE $500 Challenge!

Give today to help us unlock $500 in matching funds!

A fundraising campaign for Finger Lakes Toy Library, Inc.

A generous donor has challenged FLTL to raise $500 on New Year's Eve to unlock another $500 in matching funds! Can you help us meet this challenge?!

      Every dollar given to to FLTL goes directly towards supporting play in our community!

 In just 18 months the Finger Lakes Toy Library has built a strong network of members, community supporters, and partner organizations. We rely on public financial support to provide our services to ALL children and families in our area, regardless of ability to pay. We are almost entirely volunteer-run, and all of your dollars directly impact families in our community.

The Finger Lakes Toy Library is an independent 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to improve quality of life by increasing access to toys, supporting play, and encouraging a culture of reuse and sharing. Play is increasingly being shown to be invaluable to the development and education of children, especially during early childhood, and we are positively impacting Ithaca's children by making high-quality toys and opportunities for play accessible to everyone in the community.
