The Endowment Fund 

The Endowment Fund was established in 1981 by the Library Board of Trustees to assure current and enduring financial support for the T. B. Scott Library by continuing the tradition of philanthropy and the spirit of innovation that built the library over 100 years ago.

 The Endowment Fund is dedicated to building a funding reserve to strengthen the library's assets beyond tax-based support and lift its resources and services to standards of excellence.

 The Endowment Fund provides a permanent source of funds to be used for special collections or projects that will enhance and sustain the innovative leadership and quality service the citizens of the Merrill area have come to expect from the library.

The Library Board has established special, separate accounts within the Endowment Fund to meet the needs of the library and to offer flexibility for donors.

DESIGNATED ACCOUNTS

 The Capital Improvements Account

The Capital Improvements Fund provides for substantial additions and/or/ repairs for buildings, materials, landscaping, furnishings and equipment that will help assure that the library will meet the needs of the people in our area for years to come.           

The Memorial Books Account

Books or other library materials may be purchased as memorials or in observance of a special occasion such as an anniversary, birthday, reunion, or christening through a donation to this account.          
Sub-accounts with donor or Trustee specified restrictions may be established.
     Materials purchased from these funds are designated by a special bookplate.

The Special Projects Account

Donations to this account provide funding for projects that will offer new, improved or innovative services, conveniences, programs, or collections. 
Sub-accounts may be established, with donor or Trustee specified restrictions.  
Expenditures from this portion of the Fund are not restricted to interest income only, but do require Trustee approval.
