Help provide a more secure and permanent future for the Library & Museum and the community we serve by making a contribution to our Endowment Fund. Gifts to the Endowment will be used to increase the real value of its assets and to maintain and improve  the purchasing power of the Endowment.  The long-term goal of the Endowment Fund is to pay out each fiscal year (on a monthly basis) approximately 5% of the average market value of the Endowment assets for the previous fiscal year.  Learn More
