Are you interested in supporting the library financially? Donors have several different options, thanks to our partnership with the Community Foundation of Chippewa County. The Community Foundation is a local, tax-exempt, publicly supported nonprofit organization. The Community Foundation hosts many different funds and funds of its own in order to give back to the community. We received several key grants through the Community Foundation during COVID and they have supported the library’s summer programming efforts as well. The Community Foundation is a trusted leader in our area through encouraging philanthropy and delivering the highest quality donor services. The Community Foundation strives to be a collaborative partner and leader in addressing important issues that will strengthen Chippewa County now and well into the future.

Library Funds

The library has two funds with the Community Foundation: an endowment fund and the pass-through building fund.

Endowment Fund
A technology-focused fund for updating the library’s resources every year. Created in 2020 with the goal that the principle will not be touched and the money earned by the account will go towards things like computers, hotspots, and other resources the regular library budget doesn’t cover.

Pass-through Fund
The library’s building fund is a pass-through account which was established for the purpose of funding the library’s renovation and expansion project. Recently renewed, this is meant to be a temporary fund in use just while we are running a capital campaign to fund the building project.

Ways to give

There are many different options that the Community Foundation accepts as donations for the library. Most charitable gifts qualify for maximum tax advantage under federal law. The three primary donation methods are through check, online, and cash.

When writing out a check, please make it out the Community Foundation of Chippewa County. In the memo indicate the fund the donation is meant for, eg D.R. Moon Building (Pass-through) or D.R. Moon Endowment.

Checks can be mailed to the Community Foundation at:
Community Foundation of Chippewa County
PO BOX 153,
Chippewa Falls, WI 54729

Visit the Community Foundation’s online donation portal here and follow the steps provided. Make sure to click the “Select Fund or Event” option in order to specify the D.R. Moon Library Fund (for the endowment) or the D.R. Moon Library Pass-through (for the building project).

Drop off your cash donation at the library or the Community Foundation and specify which fund you wish to donate towards. Please never mail cash to the library or to the Community Foundation.
