Endowment Fund

The Mount Horeb Public Library Endowment Fund (the Endowment Fund), a tax-deductable entity managed by the Library Board, aims to support the Library above and beyond the library's operating budget and Friends of the Library contributions for the long term. The Endowment Fund, created in 2003, was initially funded with various memorial donations. The principal funds were invested. Additional contributions are added to the principal and the investment income is available annually to complement, but not replace, the ongoing critical support roles of the Village of Mount Horeb and the Friends of the Library. For example, in 2016 the Endowment Fund provided free Wifi to the Mount Horeb library users by funding a data plan and 5 mobile hotspots for check-out. The Endowment Fund also paid for three iPads and coding software so youngsters visiting the library can learn basic coding concepts through play. Donations to the Endowment Fund are tax deductible and can be sent to Endowment Fund, 105 Perimeter Road, Mount Horeb, WI 53572.

Enhance our Library, a community resource, which offers opportunities for personal growth, learning, and enjoyment. Fund innovative, ongoing projects through perpetuity.
