Legacy Endowment

Rooted in a legacy of faithfulness, the Association of Christian Librarians is now positioned to invest for a strong future. In honor of the Association's 60th anniversary, the ACL Board voted to designate $60,000 as the foundation for an endowment to benefit the Association and its members.  This board-designated endowment will aid ACL and its members by providing resources for professional development opportunities, scholarships, research and special projects. To contribute to the Legacy Endowment, please select "Legacy Endowment" in the Donation Type dropdown on the Donations Form

November 2019 Update

The FACL Legacy Endowment continues to grow from member contributions, even without continuing a dedicated campaign. The current balance of the fund is $77,885 and growing! This past June, the Board of Directors approved a four-fold purpose for the use of endowment funds: scholarship, conference attendance, research, and professional development. The Board also addressed the administration of the fund and the application process for awarding the Endowment funds. We are pleased to report that the application process will roll out in 2020, with the first distribution of awarded funds to occur in 2021. Please be thinking about a research project, conference, or other professional development need that you have that might fit within the scope of the Endowment. 

Would you join us in supporting the mission of FACL by giving a gift to the endowment?

While our initial goal is to fully fund the endowment with $100,000, we won’t stop there! Your ongoing contributions to the Legacy Endowment will expand our capacity for furthering the mission of ACL by supporting the growth and development of our members. We are excited to see how God will use these funds. With your support, ACL can help librarians make a difference in their own libraries and across the globe.
