Lake Villa District Library's Fiscal Year 2022 - 2024 Strategic Plan
Lake Villa District Library Foundation
The Lake Villa District Library Foundation is the public not-for-profit charitable arm of Lake Villa District Library (LVDL). The Foundation offers various methods to contribute to the library and aids in broadening the funding base in support of operational, capital and programmatic needs. Established by the LVDL Board of Trustees in 2003, the LVDL Foundation was incorporated by the State of Illinois as a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization under the Internal Revenue Service tax code in 2004. All contributions are tax deductible.
There are three methods available to support the LVDL Foundation: the legacy tribute, the collection endowment, and the annual community event.
Annual Community Event - Grapes & Growlers: A Night at the Library
Plans are underway for the 2024 Grapes & Growlers: A Night at the Library event, scheduled for Friday, February 9, 7-9pm. We hope you’ll join us.
Grapes & Growlers has become a community tradition. It’s the perfect diversion for a winter night and a great way to get your name out in the community and to support the library. Proceeds from the event benefit our annual summer reading program, which is the library’s most popular program.
Sponsorship information is available here. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
The Legacy Tribute
The legacy tribute provides means for the purchase of a specific book or collection of materials in recognition of an individual or group. The recognition can be for a specific achievement, accomplishment or in memory of a loved one.
All collection endowment and legacy tribute materials will have a bookplate to identify the individual or group being recognized, the reason for the recognition and the name of the individual or group who made the donation.
The Collection Endowment
The collection endowment is an opportunity to provide ongoing means for the expansion of the library’s collection. An endowment will be established when a minimum of $500 has been received for a special collection. Every year after, 5% of the endowment’s value will be used to purchase a new book for that endowment’s collection.
All library collections are eligible for endowment, or a general endowment can be established. Some examples are History, Caregiver, Local Author, Foreign Language.
