Matching Challenge Grant Announced from Troy Family

February 21, 2018

On Monday, February 19, Troy residents Tom and Ingrid Perring announced a challenge matching grant that will match dollar for ���dollar any contribution made to the Troy Public Library Endowment fund between today and March 19 up to $4,000.

“We are only $8,000 short of our $100,000 goal for the endowment. Through the generosity of the Perring Family, and hundreds of other families, we can make our goal a reality by March 19, the 18th month anniversary of the Endowment Fund,” said Cathy Russ, Troy Library Director.

All donors of $100 or more are recognized on the Library Endowment Donor Wall. Any donor that contributes $100 or more before March 1 will be included in the 2018 "second edition" of donor recognition books. All donors will be invited to the private, donors-only event in May for the unveiling.

Every $100 donation will also equal an entry to win a Kindle eReader, pre-loaded with five books. Learn more about the Endowment fund here.

The Endowment Fund total is currently $92,000. Help us reach our goal by March 19!
