The Gladstone Public Library Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that provides support to the Gladstone, Oregon library community. It is independent of city and county government and is focused on the literary and cultural needs of the surrounding community.This foundation is directed by a nine-member all-volunteer board consisting of members from Gladstone, Clackamas, Oak Grove, Oregon City and the central Clackamas County, Oregon.

The goal of GPL-Foundation is to provide the opportunity to all for lifelong education and development. We seek to not only help build the library and its programs, but also increase cultural awareness and pride in our community,  find common ground for dialogue, and interaction among one another.

The GPL-Foundation, with the help of the community via gifts and donations, provides the library and community with support not only for reading and education programs, but also provides opportunities for enrichment. These include the popular summer reading program, and cultural passes. Contributions to the GPL-Foundation are tax deductible. Consult your tax advisor.
