Administrative Charges on Donor Designated Gifts
One of the fundamental goals of MPLF is to support library branch and program fundraising, for which the Foundation incurs substantial costs and out-of-pocket expenses for proposals, reports, stewardship and recognition of donors and their gifts. The foundation adopts the policy to withhold 5% of each donor designated gift of $1001 and above to support these administrative charges.
