The Chili Public Library Foundation is the catalyst for the expansion of library services by raising funds through vital partnerships and advocacy efforts, supporting the education and growth of the Chili community.
About the Chili Public Library Foundation
The Chili Public Library Foundation is a volunteer-run organization dedicated solely to raising funds to support library services, the future growth and long-term sustainability of the Chili Public Library. The Foundation was created as a result of a two-year partnership between the Library's senior leadership, the Library Board of Trustees, members of the Friends of the Chili Public Library, and Causewave Community Partners.
The Foundation is a 501c(3) non-profit organization accepting tax deductible contributions. Legal services supporting the creation of the Foundation were generously provided by the Frank & Jean Iacovangelo Foundation.
Why a Foundation?
The Town of Chili's recent bond resolution was the only way to provide the much-needed modernization of the library building. However, it does not provide support for the growing need of services provided by the Chili Public Library or the additional furnishings, technology and amenities to outfit the new facility. The Foundation was formed to raise funding from private sources that support new and innovative projects dedicated to life-long learning for the new Library and beyond. These projects will benefit Chili residents today and into the future.
