The Endowed Book Funds

The HSL/LRC staff continues to look for innovative ways to "stretch" the library's budget for print and electronic materials.  One such way of easing the burden of inflationary increases is to encourage donors to endow a book fund.

HSL/LRC currently maintains 16 endowed funds (listed below).  Physical materials purchased with endowed funds are labeled with a book plate.  Electronic and multimedia resources purchased with endowed funds are tagged with a link to the endowed fund page on the library’s website.

The advantage of an endowed fund is that it keeps on giving.  Each year the amount of money realizes increases based on the investment of the principle.  Individuals can give to an existing fund or establish one in their own name.  For a minimum gift of $10,000 an endowed fund will be established to recognize the donor.
