The Lanier Theological Library is a Texas nonprofit corporation owned and managed by the Lanier Theological Library Foundation, founded in 2011. The foundation and its governing board is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the primary goal of securing voluntary contributions to help support operational expenses, acquisition of materials, public programs, and capital needs of the Lanier Theological Library. The governing board is composed of seven (7) members, all with an interest in promoting the Library and in looking for possibilities for maintaining, growing and endowing the future of the library. Monetary contributions are administered by the Foundation.

The purpose of the Lanier Theological Library Foundation is to:
  • Create and maintain an endowment to finance future library needs;
  • Provide funds for outreach such as public programs, visits by scholars and students, and special conferences;
  • Provide the library community with a way to support the library with donations, gifts and/or bequests;
  • Oversee professional management of fund assets;
  • Produce a source of income to supplement the library operating budget.
