TDL Endowment Fund
After much encouragement from supporters like you, we are excited to announce that the Trustees of the Library have established an endowment fund under the umbrella of the Lenawee Community Foundation. Our purpose in creating this fund is to grow an independent source of revenue to ensure the library’s future prosperity for the generations to come.
As a long time supporter of the library, you know how it felt when the existence of the library was in peril. Thanks to ardent supporters, like you, we have grown our hours of operation, resources, services and outreach into the community. With generous gifts from a few individuals, we have been able to reach beyond our means and beautify our grounds by adding the Ken Herrick Memorial Garden which adds an outdoor reading area to the library.
By establishing the Tecumseh District Library Endowment Fund, we are creating an opportunity for you and others to give to a permanent fund that will help us and future trustees maintain and enhance this important community treasure. Donations made to this fund will be invested permanently and the interest only utilized, when needed, to fund special projects and improvements that are beyond tax generated revenues. As this fund grows, so will the interest it earns.
Please “Say Yes” again to supporting this important community treasure by donating to the Tecumseh District Library Endowment Fund. When you make a contribution to this fund, you may also take advantage of the Michigan Community Foundation Tax Credit, as well as federal tax deductions making the cost of your gift considerably less than your original donation. By giving generously, you will help cement the future growth and prosperity of the library and secure its place in the community as an attractive and accessible resource for all.
