Seed grants


One of the many services provided by FOLIO to public libraries around the state is the awarding of seed grants to help with the formation, reorganizing, or revitalizing of a Friends group to support a local library.

These grants in the amount of $425 each are available to help with the possible legal expenses of incorporation, the creation and duplication of promotional materials, office supplies, and/or other expenses for communications, such as newsletters, telephone calls, and postage. These grants have been available because of the generous support of a Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation Challenge Grant and general FOLIO funds.

All that is necessary is for a library’s proposed “Friends of the Library” group to complete and submit a seed grant application with appropriate documentation to help the Seed Grant Committee determine the viability of the applying group.


Applications should be submitted to FOLIO by the first day of September, December, March, or June, to be considered at the next quarterly meeting of the FOLIO board of directors. Seed grants are awarded on the basis of need and available funds.


Additional valuable information, including several helpful free “toolkits,” can be found on the United for Libraries web site:  http://www.ala.org/united/friends


If you have questions, please feel free to contact any member of the FOLIO board of directors. A list of FOLIO board members can be found here: http://www.okfriends.net/board.html
