Talmage Library and Event Center

Goal: $10,000.00

Specific Need

The Talmage Library and Event Center board of directors has elected to open the Talmage Library Endowment Fund through the Community Foundation of Dickinson County.

“The best effort all of us can make for our community is to leave a tangible legacy, something useful for those who follow us,” stated Library Board President Shawni Sheets. “I believe our library/school renovation project is important to the future success of our community as it provides a place for events, family gatherings, growing, learning, playing, and remembering our history, so I hope alumni and community members will donate to the Talmage Library Endowment Fund.”

 The purpose of an endowed fund is to send a signal to the community and donors that the organization or agency is thinking long-term and is building assets for its own future sustainability, and the Community Foundation wants to help in this effort. So, on March 15th, your Donations will Double to make a Difference.

The Community Foundation will double up to $10,000 in donations for each nonprofit, so be prepared to give on March 15th through the Community Foundation of Dickinson County. You donate, CFDC doubles your donation, and amazing things happen!

The methods for donating include in person at the Community Foundation, 418 NW Third Street, Abilene on March 15th or online at www.donatedickinson.com and click on Talmage Library & Event Center on March 15, or send a check to PO Box 807 to arrive prior to March 15 and we will add it to our funds that day.  We will have a booth at the Foundation office that day to visit with walk in donors.  To learn more, call Shawni Sheets at 785-643-9126.

We thank you!
