Purpose

The  Washburn Foundation was formed to build an endowment that will provide financial support for the enhancement of library materials, programs, services, technologies and capital improvements. The funds, when distributed, will complement, not supplant, the Town of East Bridgewater’s responsibility for the continuous operation of the East Bridgewater Public Library.

Approved for 501(c) (3) tax-exempt status, the Washburn Foundation, Inc. will solicit cash donations from residents, patrons and corporations through mail and personal solicitations, highlighting the educational, social and cultural value the Library provides to residents, patrons and corporations in and around East Bridgewater, MA.

The Directors of the Washburn Foundation, Inc. will make periodic disbursement(s) to the East Bridgewater Public Library based on the needs and recommendations of the Library Director and the East Bridgewater Public Library Board of Trustees.
