The fund provides financial assistance to the library that will be spent exclusively on art and cultural programs.  The annual interest earnings will provide a stable, ongoing funding source to enhance arts programming at the Library. The fund is held and managed by the Alaska Community Foundation

Petersburg Public Library Endowment Fund

Our Endowment is a permanent fund - the principal is invested and only the investment earnings are spent.

Petersburg Public Library Endowment Fund was established in 2007 to hold funds for the construction of a new library. With that goal reached, the fund now provides a stable, ongoing funding source to improve and expand the programs and services provided by the Library in our new facility. The fund is held and managed by the Alaska Community Foundation

Gifts of $100 or more can be acknowledged on the library's Fishing Wall.

Donations can be made online below,  at the library front desk or by mailing your contribution to the Petersburg Public Library, PO Box 549 Petersburg Alaska 99833.
