Royal CU Foundation Makes $300K Gift to Local Public Library

WHITEHALL, Wis. – The RCU Foundation made a $300,000 gift to the Friends of the Whitehall Public Library’s “Roots and Wings” campaign. The funds from this campaign will be used to construct a new library facility in downtown Whitehall. The new library will provide a more effective and efficient space to serve the community.

"We are so pleased to be the recipients of this generous grant from the RCU Foundation” said Amanda Hegge, Director of the Whitehall Public Library.  “Without this gift, we would not be in the position to break ground on our library project this year.”

“Libraries enhance the quality of life for all” said Tom Huffcutt, Secretary of the RCU Foundation Board. “We are honored to support the new Whitehall public library as it will ensure that community members from Whitehall and beyond will have a place to gather and learn for years to come.” The Royal Credit Union Foundation Program Area in the new library facility will be a flexible space that can be configured to meet the changing needs of the community.

Construction is expected to begin in 2023 with the new library opening in 2024.
