The collection of written knowledge in some sort of repository is a practice as old as civilization itself. The name for the repository eventually became the library. The library, often championed, has been a survivor throughout its long history and serves as a testament to the thirst for knowledge.

While we don't know what changes libraries will incur in the next 100 years, we do know that they will continue to serve our communities in vital ways. Endowments are one way to ensure a stable streaming fund into the future.
Interested in starting your own endowment? The Foundation will work with you and your advisors on the best way to allow you to accomplish the goals you have for your family, while honoring your dedication to the libraries.
Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation's has a number of active endowments.
The More to Explore Endowment expands and enhances the basic collections of Sno-Isle Libraries. The Endowment currently has two funds within it:
The Operating Endowment supports annual operating, programming and service needs. It was established by Clarence Noyer in memory of his wife Betty and in honor of all librarians and the work of the libraries.

All endowments are held and invested on behalf of the Foundation by the Greater Everett Community Foundation. Professional managers ensure careful oversight and administration.
