Endowment

Verona Public Library Endowment
What is the endowment fund?

The Verona Public Library Endowment is our long term savings account. This permanent fund in which your gift is invested grows over time. The principal remains in the fund, with the interest providing income to the library for years to come. It is a way for people who love the library to give a monetary gift that will continue to grow and create a legacy for the future. Funds will be used to enhance our offerings of innovative programs, performances, lectures, and travelling exhibits for all ages.

 

Why give now?
There is no better time to donate to the Verona Public Library.  We have received a challenge grant from Madison Community Foundation. When we raise $100,000, the Madison Community Foundation will contribute $50,000 to the library endowment. This is an amazing opportunity to increase the impact of the gift you give today.
