The Lincoln County Library Foundation was established in 1979. The purpose of the Foundation is to secure gifts, endowments and memorials, and sponsor functions for buildings and financial support of the Lincoln County Library System, and, to administer such gifts, endowments and memorials donated and earned monies for the buildings and support of the Lincoln County Library System. The Foundation is organized exclusively for educational purposes, including for such purposes, the making of distributions for an organization that qualifies as an exempt organization under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954.
The Board of Directors of the Lincoln County Library Foundation and its officers are the same as the Board of Trustees and its officers of the Lincoln County Library System. Meetings for the transaction of Foundation business are held immediately after Library Board of Trustee meetings and at such other times as the Board may deem necessary. The quorum for meetings of the Foundation board shall be the same as the Library Board of Trustees.
The mission of the Lincoln County Library Foundation is to enhance and enrich the quality and range of library services, materials and programs of the Lincoln County Library for today and for the future. All personal and corporate charitable donations given to the Foundation are tax deductible.
We are very excited to announce that our Endowment Challenge has been completed. The Wyoming State Legislature had provided a wonderful opportunity for county libraries by setting aside $12.1 million in matching funds to encourage the establishment and growth of library endowments.
The Lincoln County Library Foundation was eligible to receive a two-to-one match of up to $343,913. We have reached this goal. The funds donated to the Lincoln County Library Foundation are managed by the Wyoming Community Foundation.
