We are truly grateful to the countless other community members who donated to Bookmarks from April 2016 through the conclusion of our capital campaign in May 2017. From supporters who donated hundreds of dollars, attended our ticketed author events, or rounded up to support the literary arts, everyone came together to make this a community space to be treasured.

Please note, Bookmarks will release an annual report in the late fall with a listing of all of our donors and sponsors from July 1, 2016 – September 30, 2017. The above list is specifically donors that supported the capital campaign at the $1000 level or above.
