Monetary Donations

You can make a monetary donation in a few different ways. You can click on the link below and make a donation via our PayPal account:

You can also make donations at the Library via cash, card, or check. Checks should be made payable to “Lavender Library, Archives, and Cultural Exchange of Sacramento.”

Book/DVD/Periodical Donations

You can also donate books, DVDs, periodicals (magazines, newspapers) to the Library. We do not accept non-LGBTQ material. We have a standard donation form that includes a receipt for tax deduction purposes.

While we will accept all LGBTQ materials, we are often looking for specific materials to help diversify our collection. Check in with a volunteer to ask about any specific materials we are looking for (ie. children’s or teen’s books, materials centering LGBTQ people of color, materials centering Intersex identities/experiences, etc.).

Archival Donations

We accept archival donations of materials that are LGBTQ-specific and tied to the Sacramento and Northern California regions. We have a standard Deed of Gift form that must be filled out for all archival donations. This form transfers ownership from the donor to LLACE. Contact the volutneer archivist for more information:

Past Fundraisers

Community member Cherie Gordon organized a fundraiser and art talk on early 20th Century Queer/Lesbian painter Romaine Brooks in May 2017, and raised money for the Library! We’re so thankful!
