The Friends support and enhance library services in many ways

Elizabeth Seto Endowment Fund  
 
General Information - payment & mailing  
  

  
  

The Friends of the Library are proud to manage three unique Endowment Funds: Technology Endowment Fund, Book Endowment Fund, and Elizabeth Seto Memorial Endowment Fund. Each of these Funds was designed to perpetually support the needs of the Friends of the Library through a designated investment fund. These funds are invested to earn income each year, and as the value of the endowment grows, so does the income it generates. The income is used to support the library, but the principal always remains invested in order to perpetuate the fund.




TECHNOLOGY ENDOWMENT FUND
(see Donation Information below)
 

 
All contributions to Endowment Funds are tax deductible. All contributions are recognized in the Friends of the Library’s Annual Report.

BOOK ENDOWMENT FUND  
(see Donation Information below)

 

The longstanding Book Endowment Fund is the fund most familiar to Friends' members. Book plates identifying that a book was purchased through the auspices of the BEF can be found in many of the books currently in circulation at the library. Books considered for purchase through the BEF are not normally purchased through the library materials budget. Contributions to the BEF are placed into an interest-bearing account, and it is the interest generated from the account that funds the purchase of "special titles of long-lasting interest to the citizens of South Pasadena. . .".

Contributions can be made to: Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library. Please indicate on your check that you would like your contribution to go to the Book Endowment Fund. The mailing address is:

 

Book Endowment Fund

South Pasadena CA 91030

BEF contributions are tax deductible. All contributors are recognized in the
Annual Report, so please let us know how you want to be acknowledged.
 
 


 ELIZABETH SETO MEMORIAL ENDOWMENT FUND
(see Donation Information below)
 

The Elizabeth Seto Memorial Endowment Fund was established in 2001 to remember Elizabeth Seto and to honor her love of books
and community. The fund was established by Elizabeth’s family to provide annual interest income toward the purchase of books for the children’s collection. Over the past 10 years, more than 400 books have been purchased in Elizabeth’s memory and are enjoyed daily by hundreds of children.
