The library’s donor wall recognizes the Friends, Foundation, and many individuals and organizations who have supported the library with significant financial contributions.
Gifts of any size are gratefully accepted, but donor wall recognition begins at the $1,000 level. Each category on the donor wall signifies a level of contribution:
- READER: $1,000 – $4,999
- SPONSOR: $5,000 – $9,999
- PATRON: $10,000 – $24,999
- BENEFACTOR: $25,000 – $49,000
- FOUNDER: $50,000 - $99,999
- PHILANTHROPIST: $100,000 +
Plaques may be made with the names of individuals or organizations making the gift. They may also be worded in honor or memory of a loved one
Donations may be made by check payable to either the Friends of the Oceanside Public Library or the Oceanside Public Library Foundation. Many donations are the result of bequests that came to the library from individuals who had named the library as a beneficiary in their will or family estate planning. These exceptional gifts have made it possible to make dramatic improvements to library facilities and services.
