Endowment Fund

The Chippewa Falls Public Library Endowment Fund was established in 2006 as a participant in the Community Foundation of Chippewa County.

An endowment is a source of income that is permanently set aside for the long-term benefit of the library. Gifts and bequests given to the Endowment Fund remain intact as principal to be invested. As the fund grows, earnings from the principal become an ongoing source of funding that can ensure the growth and advancement of the library for future generations.

The Endowment Fund will be used to find new ways for people to use today's technology and to build collections of materials that will enrich the lives of our users. Eventually, we hope to expand the library building thereby creating new and more vibrant space for people to use in a variety of ways.

 The Endowment will accept the following types of gifts:     

  • Monetary donations
  • Bequests by will or living trust
  • Stocks, bonds or other investments
  • Beneficiary designations from life insurance policies, IRAs and other retirement plans
  • Life income gifts, such as charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts

To make a pledge, stop at the Circulation desk to pick up a donor brochure and form. If you want to use a credit card, you can also donate online to the Community Foundation of Chippewa County Library Endowment Fund HERE.
