Ways to Give

Endowment Funds

Endowment funds ensure a perpetual stream of income to support programs and resources at the library. The Madison Community Foundation currently manages these funds for individual branches, special purpose, and a general endowment. Ten percent of all annual fund donations help grow the library foundation’s general endowment. If a capital campaign led by Madison Public Library Foundation exceeds it goal, the additional funds are used to establish an endowment for that branch. 

Donors of $1,000+ to endowment funds receive 10% off  Central Library space rentals within 12 months of gift.

Read below about how each of these various funds keep our libraries strong.

If you have a donor-advised fund through Fidelity Charitable or Schwab Charitable, you can make a gift directly to Madison Public Library Foundation through DAF Direct.
