Grow with Us


Wheaton Public Library has established an endowment fund in partnership with DuPage Foundation, a Downers Grove-based 501(c)(3) public charity.  Through this partnership, individuals can make contributions and bequests to Wheaton Public Library's main fund or Youth fund.  DuPage Foundation can also help facilitate gifts of retirement assets, marketable and closely-held securities and other appreciated property.

To learn more, call the Library's Business Office at 630-868-7590 or email

All donations made to the Library’s endowment fund are tax-deductible.

The Giving Tree

Located on the main floor, the Giving Tree is a beautiful, permanent art installation that features the names of individuals, organizations, and businesses who have donated $500 or more to the Library. Inclusion is cumulative, so donors may advance from one category to another over the years as they continue to donate.

Contributions are added to a permanent fund for the Library that will grow and help meet its needs today and into the future.

Monies donated to the Butterfly Wall will help to further grow and beautify the Library's youth spaces.
