Conrad Public Library Foundation

Statement of Purpose


The Conrad Public Library Foundation (CPLF) supports the Conrad Public Library in achieving its goals with fund-raising efforts and public relations.  CPLF oversees the established Conrad Library Endowment Fund and supplements the library's government appropriation, thereby permitting additional services.  Further, it applies for grants unavailable to a government agency.  Foundation funds do not replace local funding.

Conrad Library Endowment Fund


The Conrad Library Foundation Endowment Fund will be made up of gifts and bequests that are subject to the requirement that the principal be maintained intact and invested to create a source to income for the Conrad Public Library.

Investment decisions will be made by the Foundation Board.  Dividends shall be reinvested until income from the fund attains a level of cash for current needs of the library as determined by the Foundation Board.

In the event the Endowment Fund ceases to exist or meet its stated purpose, all money in the account will be transferred to the Conrad Public Library.

Conrad Public Library Foundation is a nonprofit corporation established in 1979 by the Conrad Public Library Board of Trustees.  It is separate from the Conrad Public Library, a tax-supported institution.  A seven-member board directs the organization and is responsible for its activities and finances.  Ideas for projects may come from any source, but must meet the approval of the Conrad Library Board of Trustees and be compatible with library goals and the overall plan for library services.
