Living Legacy Foundation

Gifts

You can make a financial contribution that:

  • Designates support for a specific program or services using the interest, not the principle;
  • Supports a wide range of programs or services by using only the income from the gift;
  • Memorializes a loved one for a specific or wide range of services in a designated or undesignated fund; or
  • Supports the general fund to meet specific needs.

Every gift is important. You choose the method that meets your interests and you feel will be best for the library.

Leadership

The Board of Trustees of the Living Legacy Foundation volunteer their time and are responsible for the promotion and solicitation of gifts, management and investment of funds and the distribution of funds as desired by you. They all live in the community and are committed¬†to the library’s mission.

Benefits of Your Gift

Gifts to the Living Legacy Foundation allow you to make financial commitments to the library not only for today but in the future. When you make a donation to the library, you help assure that children for generations to come will also have a chance to get a library card and explore the world through books and various methods of technology.
