Bartlett Public Library District Foundation
Founded in 2000, the Bartlett Public Library District Foundation was established to provide additional sources of revenue to enhance services and capital improvements that are not paid through property taxes. The fund is divided into two parts:
This supports specific projects for the Library. The Foundation is currently funding the Ancestry and Heritage Quest databases and the Library’s subscription to the Wall Street Journal. Fundraising efforts are directed towards funding capital improvements.
Established in the memory of the Library’s former Circulation Department Manager. Donations to this fund add to the collection of materials related to general health issues with an emphasis on women’ health. Since its inception, over $15,000 worth of books, audio visual materials, and programming have been supplied to the Library from donations to the Patti Perkins Fund.
The Foundation Executive Board makes spending decisions and project selections.
All contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. The Foundation is recognized as an IRS 501(c)(3) organization. You may also remember the Foundation in your will. Memorial donations are welcome.
Please consider including the Bartlett Public Library District Foundation in your estate planning. Many people have found that a bequest and other planned gifts such as life insurance policies or gift annuities are a relatively easy way to make a significant investment in the future of our Library.
