STEUBEN — Thanks to the generosity of the community, the Moore for the Future campaign is close to reaching its goal.
The campaign was launched in 2014 to help the Henry D. Moore Library and Community Center in Steuben raise an additional $250,000 for its endowment fund. It began in 2014 with an appeal letter asking Steuben residents, regional users and library friends to help ensure the library and community center could continue to provide services and programs while meeting its growing expenses.
At this time, the Moore to the Future campaign is just $5,000 shy of its goal, according to the endowment committee. To spur the campaign to completion, a challenge match, which had originally been designated to match donations from business, has been opened up to the public. All donations up to the $3,800 remaining in the challenge will be doubled.
Anyone who would like to donate is asked to make checks payable H. D. Moore Library and Community Center Endowment Fund and send them to P.O. Box 127, Steuben, 04680.
To show appreciation for all the donations and support, the endowment committee is planning a summer celebration. Details will be announced at a later date.
