PPL Foundation


The Pittsburg Public Library Foundation was formed in 1999. In the year 2000, an endowment was established to help ensure that the library would have adequate funding for years to come. Unless otherwise specified,  all monetary gifts to the library become part of this endowment.

Funds Management


In 2003, the Foundation Board voted to combine efforts with the Pittsburg Area Community Foundation, in an effort to strengthen both organizations. The PACF, which now includes the library endowment, is affiliated with the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, which provides professional financial management of funds in all the affiliated foundations.
