The FACL Legacy Endowment is a board-designated endowment that was created to support ACL members by providing resources for professional development opportunities, scholarship, research, and special projects. The board seeks to continue to grow the endowment through member donations and also by contributing a portion of income over expenses on an annual basis when the financial health of the organization allows. Grants were awarded in 2020 and 2021 and the board is excited to continue to see how the Legacy Endowment continues to foster the field of librarianship by funding individual libraries. To contribute to the endowment fund, choose "Legacy Endowment" as the donation type on the Donations Form.
