How Your Gift Will Be Used

Fund for Excellence

Your gift will help us build an endowed Fund for Excellence. Fund monies are invested and the earnings are used to continually enrich our collections and broaden our educational program offerings for all ages.

Example: Your bequest of $20,000 would provide an annual gift to the library of approximately $1,000 - forever.

Named Endowment Fund

For a gift of $50,000 or more, a special endowment fund, named for you or your designee, may be established. The earnings generated can support library collections, programs, or other ongoing needs of particular interest to you.

“The library encourages our young children to develop wonder and a sense of curiosity as they grow and hopefully later, a love of learning. It is the source of the same in adults. Our knowledgeable library staff is always helpful and resourceful. I love to come to the library just to sit and read; it’s so peaceful.”
