Fund offers new way to contribute to Marble Falls library

FROM STAFF REPORTS

MARBLE FALLS — If you’re looking for a way to support the Marble Falls Public Library, the Friends group has teamed up with the Highland Lakes Legacy Fund to give you a new way to do just that.

The Friends of the Marble Falls Public Library has established a fund with the Highland Lakes Legacy Fund, which is part of the Austin Community Foundation. Officials said the goal of the new library fund is to provide patrons and residents ways to support the library’s future needs.

“Our Friends group recognizes the need to begin planning for the long term to ensure that this wonderful library will be available to our community for many, many years to come,” said Mardi Cockerham, president of the Friends group.

Donna Klaeger, former library board member and interim director of the Highland Lakes Legacy Fund, pointed out that by partnering with the fund and the Austin Community Foundation, the Friends group is really looking to the future of the library.

“With the charitable fund, the library can accept complex gifts and invest in their future,” she said.

Acceptable gifts include stock, bonds, estate assets, oil/gas/mineral rights, retirement assets, business interests and life insurance. All donations are tax-deductible. These assets will be invested for the library’s future use.

For more information on donating through the Highland Lakes Legacy Fund, email Klaeger at dklaeger@austincf.org or go to highlandlakeslegacyfund.org.
