|What better way to honor or memorialize a loved one, friend or event than a gift
to Morley Library. Below are some ways to make this happen...
The Endowment Fund accepts money given either in
memory of a person or to honor someone still living on a special
occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary. If desired, a book
will be added to Morley Library's collection in a specific subject
bearing both the donor and honoree's name. The capital in this
fund is never spent; the interest from the account is used to purchase
materials for the Library. This is the most popular giving
option.. Legally, this is considered a non-expendable trust fund.
The money in this fund is used for capital building and land
improvements beyond the scope of a yearly budget. Both capital and
interest can be expended. For instance, it has been used for repaving
the parking lot, planting trees and to help finance the new building.
Gifts are accepted into this fund, and can be earmarked in someone's
memory or to honor a special person.
The Trust Fund is legally considered an
expendable trust fund. As such, the capital can be spent.
There are several ongoing gifts from the Morley Family that support this
fund. In addition, The Library has received gifts over the years
that have been earmarked for special purposes and are so used. The
Trust Fund purchases are used for extra things that make Morley Library
the exceptional service organization that it is. The money has
been used in the past for furniture, equipment such as microfilm
reader/printers, and even for the down payment for the Bookmobile.
