Endowment Campaign

FVGLA 110-Year Endowment Campaign

FVGLsmThe Farmington Village Green and Library Association (FVGLA) enhances the quality of life of Farmington residents and preserves the cultural history of our town.  FVGLA owns, finances and manages the Farmington Libraries, Stanley-Whitman House, the Village Green and Memento Mori Cemetery.

Over the past 100 years, the FVGLA has benefited from the generosity of many Farmington families, individuals, businesses and organizations.  Their contributions to the Sarah Porter Fund, started over a century ago, produced yearly income that allows the FVGLA to provide operating support for each of its properties.  The principal remains intact to provide a stable financial base for the future.  The amount spent each year is determined by a spending policy and the FVGLA Board of Trustees.  Today, the endowment stands at slightly over $4 million.

Our goal is to raise an additional $3 million dollars to grow the endowment.  We want to insure that our properties, which are critically important to our community’s visual and intellectual landscape, continue to serve Farmington for the next century.  We hope that you will support this effort with a donation to the FVGLA.
