Library Support Fund
The Support Fund
The Support Fund provides supplemental funding for capital projects that improve the Falmouth Public Library. Municipal tax revenues support the library’s on-going operations, collections, staffing, and maintenance. There are other functions that need private support to augment a strained municipal capital budget. Supplemental funding ensures that capital needs can be met, and adds to the library’s continued long-term stability. The Support Fund meets that need.
Gifts to the Falmouth Public Library Support Fund , a 501(c)(3) entity, are tax-deductible. The Federal tax ID number is 46-4475142
Operation of the Support Fund is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors, with officers and members elected annually. Members consist of Library Trustees and members of the community. By-laws govern all activities of the Board. Board meetings are held monthly.
To provide supplemental funding to the Library with an emphasis on long-term support and planned giving.
