About Us

Northville District Library Endowment Fund
Give. Inspire. Grow.

Your gift to the Northville District Library Endowment Fund helps ensure our future.

Touch the Future with a Gift to the Library Endowment Fund

The Northville District Library Endowment Fund was established in 2001 under the auspices of the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan. Its mission is to provide a permanent source of income to ensure continued excellence in the programs and services of the Northville District Library. The Fund has grown to over $400,000 since it's inception. An endowment is the perfect way to make a difference during your lifetime and, at the same time, provide a gift that lasts forever. Your contribution is pooled with others and invested to earn income for the Library.

Why Your Gift Matters

Contributions of all sizes are welcome and meaningful as they will grow over time, enabling the endowment to become an increasingly significant source of enhancement funding for the Library. Your gift will help the Library expand and diversify its collections, invest in new technologies, and provide a wide range of programs that appeal to all ages and backgrounds. It will ensure the Library's future as a vibrant, inviting place for all members of the community.

I geek cook - Jim Morche

I Geek cooking. As chair for
Northville's Dining Light group
whose challenge is to create dishes
that are low in fat, sugar and salt, yet
flavorful, I often use the library's books and magazines about healthy meals. And you can't beat the price!

Bon Appetit.
Dr. James T. Morché,
Library Board of Trustees Member


I Geek technology.
