Endowment Fund

Madison Community Foundation

Did you know that the Oregon Public Library has an Endowment Fund through the Madison Community Foundation that serves as our long term savings account? This permanent fund, in which your gift is invested, grows over time. The principal remains in the fund, with the interest providing income to the library for years to come. It is a way for people who love the library to give a monetary gift and create a legacy for the future. Funds will be used to enhance our offerings of innovative programs, performances, lectures, collections, and new technologies for all ages.
