Mary Van Gorden Endowment Fund for the Black River Falls Public Library’s History Room

The fund was established by Mary in August of 1995 for the purpose of providing financial support for the Library’s Jackson County History Room.  Earnings from the fund are used for: a) salary and fringe benefit costs of any paid employee(s) within the History Room; and b) educational experiences for the History Room’s paid employee(s) and/or volunteers, which will enhance the value to the History Room. In 2012 Mary Van created a second fund, the Mary Van Gorden Charitable Fund.
