Anderson endowment gift benefits teens

The Bozeman Public Library Foundation is pleased to announce it has received a $250,000 endowment gift from longtime Library supporter Marcia Anderson.

Anderson’s gift will support local youth through the creation of the Marcia Anderson Endowment for Teen Programs. This vital fund will maintain a stable, ongoing source of funding for teen programs, services, and resources at the Bozeman Public Library.

“We are deeply grateful for Marcia’s incredible generosity in creating a lasting legacy that directly benefits teens. She has already been an amazing advocate for this group with prior donations that allowed us to replace worn out furniture in the Teen Corner, purchase new laptops reserved for teen use, and host the inaugural Teen Book Fest in November 2018,” said Janay Johnson, Library Foundation Director.

“By creating an endowment, I wanted to provide a base level of funding that will be there year in and year out to give teens a safe space and healthy activities, as well as foster a lifelong love for reading,” said Anderson.

Marcia Anderson and her late husband Buck have invested heavily over the years in charitable organizations in the Gallatin Valley. Their generosity has created a lasting legacy for the community’s citizens.
