Warne Local History Endowment
Several years ago, the Warne Family Charitable Foundation gave a generous gift of $50,000 to the Orange Public Library Foundation. Their intent was specific and absolutely wonderful: The $50,000 was an endowment. An endowment is a gift that keeps on giving. The Warnes’ local history endowment has provided support to digitize local history photos and other records. The Library has also used funds from this endowment to purchase local High School Yearbooks. Endowments are a legacy to our community and our libraries, helping to preserve local history, purchase library materials, and strengthen the education and information available to people of all ages and stages.
