The Foundation's mission is to provide supplemental funding to the library with an emphasis on long-term support and planned giving. Our vision is to enhance the District's ability to enrich the lives of everyone in our community.
The Foundation's major goal for 2013-2014 is to establish the "Insure the Legacy Fundraising Campaign" to achieve its long-held goal of a million dollar endowment which provides funds to the Library District annually. Funds have been generated through Foundation membership dues, Author Galas, and memorial and gift recognition leaves on Katherine's Tree at the Headquarters Library. All funds raised during this campaign will go toward meeting this goal.
On occasion, the Foundation has chosen to support special projects for the Library District. In 2013 the Foundation contributed funds to the Teen Center for the Cone Park Branch Library Facility as it did in 2012 to create a Teen Space in the Headquarters Library. In 2007, the renovation of a Headquarters meeting room was underwritten by the Foundation. The room was renamed in honor of the Foundation. Find out more at www.acldfound.org.
