Mission Statement

The mission of the non-profit Murrieta Public Library Foundation is to obtain private funding and to establish endowments to augment the Murrieta Public Library's ability to meet the cultural, educational, informational, and recreational needs of the Murrieta community.



What We Are

The Murrieta Public Library was established April 1999 in a temporary location. The Library opened its new 25,000 square foot facility in March 2007.

Murrieta Public Library Foundation, Inc was formed as a non-profit corporation in 2008, and received its tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code in early 2009. (Tax Identification Number: 26-3514473)



                                   What We Do

We obtain private funding and endowments to augment the Murrieta Public
Library's ability to meet the cultural, educational, informational, and recreational needs of the Murrieta community.

To accomplish this objective, we solicit donations from organizations and individuals wishing to contribute to and endow activities of the Murrieta Public Library.

The funding of the Murrieta Public Library is derived from dedicated county taxes collected from Murrieta property owners and from the City of Murrieta.


As new Library activities are developed, new funds sources must be found to meet the costs associated with these new activities. We provide funding for new and ongoing Library Activities in its public areas, including the Community Room and outdoor Garden of Verses.



Goals



Background

Library Foundations are separate non-profit organizations that share the mutual goal of providing monetary support for the library beyond the usual revenue resources offered by the governing agency. Murrieta Public Library Foundation seeks tax-deductible donations in the form of "planned gifts" such as trusts, life insurance and bequests as well as through philanthropic means such as private grants to augment library funds. The monies raised by the Foundation provide for major goals such as enlarging or enhancing facilities, creating cultural programs and providing for long-term accounts.
