Let’s Make a Match! Help the Foundation Raise $10,000 in February for a New Endowment that Will Work for You!

Development Director Melissa Adler

How do I love the Library? Let me count the ways. If you’re like me, the list is long. First on my list is the sense of community I feel every time I walk into one of our ten Library branches or board the Mobile Library. Second is the anticipation that comes from discovery.

February is for Library lovers and this month is the perfect time to show your Library some love. From now through February 28, the Library has been challenged to raise $10,000 for the Library’s Laton Endowment, which is an unrestricted fund held at Community Foundation of the Ozarks. If we meet the $10,000 goal, CFO will contribute another $5,000 to the Library’s fund.

 The Laton Endowment will provide new, sustainable income for the Library. It will enable the Library to do more for you, the Library patron. Building this endowment will allow us to make purchases every year that aren’t covered by property tax dollars. As the endowment grows, so will usable income from the earnings. The current balance of the endowment is $476,000. We’re working to reach a half million.

Through the month of February, The Library Foundation will host a variety of fundraisers that the public can join in to help us meet our $10,000 goal. Click here for a complete list of activities. You can make a tax-deductible donation from this page by clicking the Donate Today button above The Library Foundation page.

Any gift to the Library in February is worth more because of the match challenge. And, a gift to the Laton Endowment is forever. It’s a gift that keeps giving and helps secure the future of the Library. Let’s make a match!
