Meeting the Endowment Challenge

Library looks to the future with Endowment Fund…

In the spring of 2014,  the Lincoln County Library Foundation (LCLF) board sent a letter to every postal patron in the county to request continued support for the LCLF Endowment Fund.  Response to the letter, fundraising efforts by staff and volunteers, and other donations netted an additional $18,000.  The $18,000 was matched 2 to 1 by the state, and a total of $54,000 was added to the Endowment Fund in October, 2014.

The “Endowment Challenge” began six years ago, and in that time, incredibly generous Lincoln County library supporters have contributed $253,341.  Add to that the matching dollars of $506,682 and the $100,000 bonus received when libraries statewide fundraised $2.3 million, and the LCLF Endowment Fund stands today at just over $861,000.  We are immensely grateful.

The Lincoln County Library Foundation is eligible to receive the 2 to 1 match on an additional $95,572, and we have until June, 2017 to meet that goal.  When we are finished, we could have a fund of over $1 million that will generate income in perpetuity for the enhancement and expansion of library programs and services.

Earnings from the Endowment Fund, invested through the Wyoming Community Foundation, have been used to purchase additional eAudiobooks, DVDs, and CD books, to purchase shelving and equipment, and to provide books to newborns and their parents through the Born to Read program.

You can mail your tax deductible donations to the Lincoln County Library Endowment Fund, 519 Emerald Street, Kemmerer, WY 83101 or donate online by choosing “Foundation” at the top of this page.

Thank you!
