Hood River County Library Foundation

Foundation logoIn 2010, the voters of Hood River County created a Library District to fund the Hood River, Parkdale and Cascade Locks libraries. While tax dollars keep the lights on, buildings open, and books on shelves, our tax rate is among the lowest in the state, providing just a basic level of funding. This is where the Library Foundation comes in. We are a non-profit group formed to enhance and expand library programs and service (find out more about our mission and what we fund).

Your gift helps us provide the margin of excellence that takes our libraries from good to great. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Foundation was able to donate nearly $50,000 in 2015.

Endowment Campaign – Match the Match Until June 30th!

We have a short window of opportunity to build our endowment  quickly due to a generous matching gift from an anonymous donor to the Gorge Community Foundation. GCF manages our endowment and they are offering dollar-for-dollar matching funds for donations to our endowment fund from now until June 30. We are so excited about the chance to grow our fund that members of the Library Foundation Board of Directors have pledged to kick-start the campaign by offering an additional dollar-for-fifty cent match up to $5000.  Learn More Here
