Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Geneva Library Foundation was established in 2005 to provide a substantial, permanent, and stable source of funds to support the Geneva Public Library. The Foundation has made grants to the Library that have provided patrons with benefits to supplement public support. The Foundation has also provided community enrichment through the Speaker Series on topics as diverse as the discovery of the Higgs Boson to first-person accounts of Civil Rights marches with Martin Luther King, Jr. to interstellar travel to Mars.

The Geneva Library Foundation supports the Library's vision to be a valued and innovative community resource that empowers residents to seek knowledge, create ideas, and achieve dreams.

The strategies for attaining our goals are fundraising through annual fundraising, end of year letter solicitation, Amazon Associates program and Planned Giving Program.

We have board members that have varied backgrounds including Law degree, Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), Engineering, Computer Science, Marketing and Recruiting.

Our endowment is now approaching $500,000 as we approach our 15th year. We are not yet at the $1M level in invested assets, this is the goal to provide more substantial financial support for a public institution.
