About the Trudy J. Sundberg Memorial Fund
The Trudy J. Sundberg Memorial Fund underwrites a lecture series honoring the memory of Trudy Sundberg and her lifelong commitment to discover, explore and exchange information, ideas, and opinions in an environment of respect and consideration.
An annual presentation by an eminent speaker, selected by a team of community and library staff representatives, explores the areas of interest that Trudy shared: education, literature, history, the arts, civic engagement and politics.
The lecture presentation is part of a programming initiative for adults on Whidbey Island, promoting reading and lifelong learning, and covering issues of current local and national or global interest. Funds for the program may also be used to enhance pertinent library resources and access to information for residents of the Sno-Isle Libraries district.
At any time, organizations or individuals may contribute funds online directly to the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation for support of the Trudy J. Sundberg Memorial Fund. Tax-deductible contributions also may be sent in Trudy's name to:
Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation

The Trudy J. Sundberg Memorial Fund is administered according to the policies and procedures of the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation, adhering to guidelines established with the Greater Everett Community Foundation.
