Honour a Mentor

With a donation to the OLA Mentoring Fund 

Do you want to recognize a colleague for their outstanding work?
Do you know someone who is retiring or reached a major milestone and you'd like to honour them?
Do you want to celebrate your mentor?

Donate today!

 The OLA Mentoring Fund supports OLA mentoring programs identified or developed by the OLA Mentoring Committee. Programs are aligned with the strategic priorities of the association and are designed to increase professional capacity of members through mentoring.

Many of us in the library and information sector can identify our own mentors. This fund honours those who have provided their guidance, time and expertise to strengthen the library and information profession. 

Donations to the OLA Mentoring Fund ensure the ongoing sustainability of projects like Spirit of Reconciliation, and build the capacity for developing new projects that support member development through the mentoring relationship.

Ways to Donate
By mail in cheque to the Ontario Library Association
Through The Library Marketplace
OLA Volunteers can donate via expense claim forms

Your donation will be used in mentoring projects for:

Developing new mentoring programs in rural, remote, First Nations, and Indigenous communities
