    Friends of the Library

    The Friends of the SAR Library (FOL) was organized to assist the SAR Library in implementing its collection development objectives and to provide for the purchase of non-budgeted items such as equipment, supplies and new technology.  The collection objectives include those books, manuscripts, microforms, and online services as needed to enhance and expand the current collection.


    A sub-committee of the SAR National Library and Archives Committee, the Friends consists of the Librarian General, National Library and Archives Committee Chairman, Chairman of the Friends of the SAR Library, the SAR Librarian, and State-level FOL Chairmen. Membership is also open to all SAR members, state-level societies, chapters, and the general public. The state-level Society Chairman of the FOL may coordinate the donation of books, microfilms, etc., directly to the SAR Library and promote the Library within his society so that all SAR members are familiar with it and its programs.


    Membership dues of the Friends of the SAR Library are distributed as follows:


    • 60% goes into the Library Endowment Fund, which is the permanent fund for the use of the Library, and from which the gains may only be used by the Library; and
    • 40% goes directly to the Library Special Purpose Operating Fund.
    In addition to donations of family genealogies, Revolutionary War histories, county and state histories, and other books and items of genealogical content, the SAR Library's growth depends upon cash gifts.
    The additional recognition programs of the Library include:
    • Benjamin Franklin Subscriber for gifts of $300 or more from an individual, SAR chapter, state-level society, or non-SAR organization.
    • Library Endowment Fund Contributor for gifts of $500 or more.
    • Robert Morris Benefactor for a one-time contribution of $2,000 or more.

    These monetary gifts are also invested by the SAR. Benjamin Franklin Subscribers and Robert Morris Benefactors monies are deposited in the Library Special Purpose Operating Fund; Endowment Fund Contributor monies are deposited in the Library Endowment Fund.


    Donors should indicate to which programs they wish their donations be deposited. Non-designated gifts are deposited into the Library Special Purpose Operating Fund.


    For more information on any of the above FOL and donation details, please contact the SAR Librarian, the Librarian General, or the chairman of the Friends of the SAR Library Committee.
