Library Foundation

The Ferguson Library Foundation is a separate nonprofit organization which uses private contributions to help the Library enhance its collections and services, beyond what is available through public funding.

The role of the Foundation is to ensure long term financial sustainability for the library. Since its incorporation in 1987, the Ferguson Library Foundation has carefully managed contributions to the library’s endowment.

The Foundation’s Harvey Fund supports early childhood programming, including Every Child Ready to Read.

The Cassone Fund has enriched our collections on art, culture, history, cooking and baseball.
