Love your Library? Leave a Legacy!

Contribute to the Friends of the New Braunfels Public Library Endowment Fund and invest in the future of your community. Our endowment will provide a perpetual source of funding for the growing needs of the library, and it allows donors to impact permanently a cause they care about.

The FOL Endowment Fund is in the capable hands of the New Braunfels Area Community Foundation. NBACF began in 2009 when a group of civic-minded individuals saw the need to create a local community foundation to offer individuals, business and families a professional and efficient way to match their philanthropic efforts with the needs of the area. A community foundation also relieves the benefactor of administrative burdens and overhead expenses.

Our Executive Committee and the membership have demonstrated through personal donations their commitment to the Endowment Fund and its impact on the future needs of the New Braunfels Public Library.  


Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead
