Thank you!

The Arlington Libraries Foundation is a 501(c)(3), and is eligible to receive matching gifts.

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage their employees, former employees, and/or retirees to contribute to charitable organizations. Financial contributions you make to the Arlington Libraries Foundation may be matched by your or your spouse’s current or former employer, effectively increasing the amount of your original gift. Some companies match your gift dollar for dollar, while some will even double or triple the amount of your gift!

Your personal gift and the matched contribution will be credited to the fund that you designate. Please check with your or your spouse’s current or former employer to see if they have a matching gift program.

If your company requires a FIN (Federal Tax Identification Number) to complete the matching gift request process, please use the Arlington Libraries Foundation FIN: 20-4090359. 

In many cases, a company will require the Foundation to complete a verification form confirming the donor’s original gift amount and gift date, and the Foundation’s 501(c)(3) status.   You may send the matching gift form to the Foundation by mail or via email:

Arlington Libraries Foundation
700 Massachusetts Avenue
Arlington, MA 02476

If you are interested in discussing an endowed fund or bequest, please contact the Foundation.  The Foundation has guidelines which will be useful as you consider this option.

A named endowed fund may take up to five years to attain the necessary minimum amount.  The minimum amounts for endowed funds are as follows.

  • Named Endowed Funds for Unrestricted Purposes may be established starting at $15,000.
  • Named Endowment Funds for Restricted Purposes within existing Library Functions may be established starting at $25,000.
  • Named Endowment Fund for Restricted Purposes that are New Function* at the Libraries may be established starting at $50,000.


 *A “New Library Function” is broadly defined as an activity not currently available but which falls within the mission of the libraries.  Such endowments are subject to acceptance by the Foundation only after consultation and approval by the Libraries Director and Trustees of the Foundation.
