Moore Endowment for Marion County Library (2014)
The Marion County Library System revitalized five of its long-standing endowments in Marion and Mullins by creating five endowed funds with Eastern Carolina Community Foundation in January 2014. The Moore Endowment for Marion County Library System was one of the five.
It was created by a grocery store owner named Mr. Moore to promote library services and ensure their continuation of service. He intended for his bequest to be put to the best use, and grow. By creating a designated agency fund at ECCF with the Moore Endowment, the Marion County Library System is carrying out the wishes of the original donors; growing the funds honors their gifts and opens avenues for others to expand on those gifts.
