Welcome! If you are already a donor THANK YOU!
If you are new to our annual appeal, the library foundation organizes a once-a-year request for individual and corporate gifts. The process starts by determining a critical need. The 2013 goal is to purchase approximately 30 public e-readers to lend. TCPL staff will load them with favorite fiction genres or designated nonfiction topics. Our research indicates these devices are particularly useful for people with vision or mobility issues. They offer text enlargement options, a variety of screen choices, and settings for outdoor reading. Although an e-reader weighs only 7.5 ounces, it can hold the equivalent of 825 pounds of reading. Each device includes a protective cover, contains approximately 20 books, and costs $360.
The Tippecanoe County Public Library Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We oversee an endowment fund, mostly gifts and grants from loyal library supporters. Our library operates through public support, but we also rely upon private support and donations. Gifts to the Foundation provide the independent financial resources we need to ensure a strong, stable library system - now and for future generations.
Feel free to review our IRS filings.
Making a Gift
Making gifts to the library system is a tangible way to show appreciation for the materials, programs and services you have enjoyed over the years - and to see that they continue. Gifts to the Foundation are tax deductible. Your attorney, tax advisor or financial planner can explain how making a gift to our endowment fund can benefit you and the library.
