Make it 2 M

I went to the monthly Trustees Meeting of the Fort Vancouver Library on Monday, and the representative from Woodland reported that someone who is moving to Woodland in April donated $7000 to their library building fund. I was so jealous! These people are not even residents yet, and they’ve donated a HUGE amount of money to the library in their new town. That’s community spirit.

Did you know an anonymous donor has pledged to match every donation to our Ridgefield Library building fund over $10,000? So far only two people have taken advantage of this very generous offer. The offer is good up to a million dollars, but there’s a time factor involved, so it’s important to get these donations coming.

Where are you, people of Ridgefield? Your donation would be worth double what you give and would get us that much closer to having a new library.

It’s easy to donate to the library building fund. Make your check out to the Friends of the Ridgefield Library and mail it to PO Box 534, Ridgefield, WA 98642, or take it to the library. Contributions may be tax deductible. If you want to be a Cornerstone member by donating $1000, the money can be paid in regular increments, but you do need to sign a form in order for the Treasurer to track payments. You can designate your donation be used only for the building fund if you like.
