How You Can Make a Difference:

Make a tax-deductible donation to the Foundation: It’s easy to mail a donation. Make the check out to Stanislaus Library Foundation and mail it to the Stanislaus County Library Foundation, PO Box 4862, Modesto, CA 95352-4862. Be sure to include your name, phone number, and address.  Please download the Donate Form, fill it out & include it with your check.

The Stanislaus County Library provides many services for our citizens. However, even with a voter-approved 1/8th cent sales tax, the library budget is not able to provide for those enrichment programs that are so important in building a healthy community.

The Foundation is here to bridge this funding gap. Our focus: programs that support literacy and youth. Our long term-goal is to build a self-sustaining endowment fund to ensure future programs, while continuing to support the library’s current needs.

Your gift, whether in dollars, time, or a service, is important.

Create a legacy by designating a portion of your assets to the Foundation through a bequest in your will. Bequests enable individuals to make gifts that they may not have been able to make during their lives.

The gift of time is also important. Do you have a talent for book mending? Are you willing to deliver books to people who cannot drive to the library due to health issues?
