APL Foundation is raising money for capital improvements in the library in two areas:
(1) near-term needs such as bookshelves and computers;
(2) a long-term plan to have a larger library building.
How to Donate
There are several ways you can donate to your library through APL Foundation:
• support our partner businesses
• financial contributions (does your employer match gifts?)
• buy a book
• donation of equipment or services • used book sales
• donate aluminum drink cans
• spare change
We are also partnered with some local businesses who will donate on your behalf.
APL Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity and your gift is tax-deductible as allowed by law.
The Foundation's EIN (federal tax number) is 20-1283200.
Support Our Partner Businesses
Some local businesses will make a contribution to APL Foundation based on your purchases, at no extra cost to you.
Make your check payable to "APL Foundation"
and mail it to:
3199 North White Sands Blvd., Suite A4 Alamogordo, NM 88311-2285
To earmark your donation for the new library, write "Building Fund" on your check. Donations to the new building of $25 or more will be recognized on the permanent Donor Tree in the new building. See below concerning $250 donations for a Virtual Deed. If you don't specify that your gift is for the new building, we will place it in the general fund and use it where the need is greatest.
Does your employer match gifts?
Check with your personnel or human resources department. Many employers will match your charitable contributions. This doubles your gift at no cost to you!
Here is one local employer we know of with a gift-matching program:
• PNM (Public Service Company of New Mexico) has a matching program for employees and retirees.
Read about their program here: PNM Matching Gifts Program. Include the program's application form (with part 1 filled out) with your check and mail to us at the address above, then we will complete the form and forward it to PNM.
