How the Foundation Uses Your Gift

Funds raised by the Foundation do not replace tax money; they enhance the quality and extend the range of services that public funds provide.

Because of strong community support, WCPL has avoided closing branches and cutting hours and services.

The Foundation has provided funding for e-library materials and for construction and renovation of branch libraries.

We appreciate your support of the WCPL Foundation.

Foundation Board

The WCPL Foundation was created in 1996 to support the library. The Foundation is managed by a board of directors that includes a representative from the Library Board, the Friends of the Library and the community.

The library thanks these community members who give so generously of their time and support.

Board members are

Ashby Dickerson, president
Mary Jones, vice president
Matthew Eades, treasurer
Mary Dudley, secretary

Bryan Lawson
John P. Montague
Judy Moore
Danielle Stone

Gary Lester, Library Board of Trustees
Bill Wing, Friends of the Library

The Foundation is a tax-exempt non-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. As such, donations to the Foundation are tax deductible to the full extent permitted by law.
