Harney County Library's Strategic Plan
General library services are funded through the Harney County General Fund and a portion of the Claire McGill Luce Fund which is managed by the Foundation.
The Luce Fund was released to the Library Foundation in July 2006 by the Harney County Court. A spending agreement between the Library Foundation and the County Court guides expenditure of these funds. The Library Foundation has invested the Fund with The Oregon Community Foundation as an Endowed Fund.
Additional donations and bequests are also managed by the Library Foundation for a variety of library programs.
Harney County Library Foundation

The purpose of the Foundation exists to support the Harney County Library by providing a vehicle for tax deductible charitable donations, gifts, and bequests.

Why give to the Library Foundation? Giving to the Library Foundation allows the library to use donations in a timely manner and in a way that is consistent with the wishes of the donor.
