'PJ Promise' Endowment Campaign

PJ Library, a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, is proud to launch an endowment campaign, PJ PROMISE. The campaign provides a powerful tool for sustaining PJ Library. 

How It Works

Ten communities will be selected to participate in PJ PROMISE as a pilot program. Here is how it works:

  • Communities must submit applications by Sept. 28, 2012
  • Selected communities will seek their endowment funds for a minimum of 35 percent of PJ subscriptions at the time of application.
  • Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF) will review applications and announce communities selected to participate by Nov. 30, 2012.
  • A community must receive its pledges in writing by Nov. 30, 2014, and those pledges must be paid in full by Nov. 30, 2017.
Each community participating in PJ PROMISE will receive a cash incentive from HGF equal to 10% of funds raised for the first 500 subscriptions endowed. A bonus incentive of $5,000 will be awarded for each increment of 250 subscriptions endowed.
