June 30 Deadline for Matching Grants

Last year, the Forest Grove Library Foundation received a $10,000 conditional grant from the Oregon Community Foundation. The OCF grant required us to raise $80,000 for the current capital campaign by June 30, 2012.  We had raised about $75,000 by May 21, the date of the FGLF Board Meeting. At that meeting, three board members donated a $2500 “matching” grant that will be made if another $2500 can be raised from library supporters by June 30, 2012. This month offers a great opportunity to increase the power of individual gifts because these gifts will help trigger the $2500 match from FGLF board members as well as the $10,000 OCF grant.
