Pittsford Community Library Foundation
The Pittsford Community Foundation was established in 1994 to receive and manage special bequests and contributions to the Pittsford Community Library in order to augment public support of the library. PCL Foundation funding supports library programs, books and materials.
This support by the Foundation makes it possible for the library to offer programs and services above and beyond those purchased with community tax dollars. Grants from the Foundation have been used for a variety of special projects: books, movies, electronic books, a sound system, projectors, murals, artwork, furniture, and online tutoring for students.
The Foundation relies on individual donations and bequests. Gifts to honor or memorialize a special person are welcomed and can be tailored to the interests of the individual. Please contact the Library Director, Rhonda Rossman via email or call (585) 248- 6275 to do so.
