Library Foundation

The West Linn Library Foundation was organized exclusively for charitable purposes. The foundation raises funds and other forms of support to further the educational, literary, and scientific purposes of the West Linn Public Library. A voluntary citizen board (Sherry Sheng is the chair) guides the work of the foundation. Please contact us about ways to support our library.

The Foundation received its tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) status from the Internal Revenue Service in June 2010. The IRS further designated the foundation as a 170 (b)(1)(A)(vi) public foundation. The foundation will focus on three areas for its fund raising program: 1) annual giving from individuals and organizations, 2) planned giving through bequests and estate plans, and 3) grants.
