About the Mary Riley Styles Public Library Foundation, Inc.

The Foundation is a charitable, nonprofit organization committed to providing supplementary support to the Mary Riley Styles Public Library in Falls Church. Donations to this 501(c)(3) organization are tax deductible within the extent of the law, and it serves as a mechanism by which private funding from individuals, businesses, organizations and other foundations can give and thereby enhance library materials, services, programs and equipment. Donors can specify how they would like their gifts to be spent: books, audio-visual materials, technology or other items or services.

The Foundation is staffed by volunteers. For the past two years, Foundation administrative expenses (for postage and stationery) have been held below 4%, so 96% of your donation goes to support the library!
The registered office for the Foundation is located at:
