About BARLD Foundation

In 2013 the Foundation was founded to financially support the library and thereby enhance the community’s appreciation and utilization of the library as a cultural and educational institute. The Foundation will primarily establish an endowment and other specific funds, solicit and accept donations to those funds, and administer those funds. The Foundation works closely with the boards of the Bulverde Area Rural Library District and the Friends of the Library to coordinate the common purposes of all three organizations in support of the library.

The Foundation is a non-profit, non-partisan, non-stock issuing organization and has no seal or membership dues.
