About this project
The Lake Arlington Branch Library, located near the lake in Arlington, Texas was renovated in 2011 and reopened with an aquatic theme, including a mini-ecosystem of Texas fish and plants living in a 200 gallon fresh water aquarium. Since then, the aquarium has engaged library patrons in learning about aquatic life and environments. According to Library Service Manager Debi Wood, "Sometimes there are four or five children lined up, little ones standing on stools, noses pressed against the glass, watching our fish." She said, "I love working at the fish library."
This Citizinvestor funding project will provide 12 months worth of aquarium maintenance and fish food for the Lake Arlington Branch Library. Maintenance includes:
- Water testing
- Livestock inspection
How can I be certain that the municipality will use my money for a particular project?
We've got your back! Before any project is posted to Citizinvestor, our partners agree that the money you donate to a specific project will only be used for that project.
Will my credit card be charged if a project doesn't meet 100% of its funding goal?
No! We require that a project be funded in full before any money changes hands. If a project is only 99% pledged once the deadline hits, nobody's credit card gets charged, including yours.
When will my credit card be charged?
Your credit card will be charged the same day in which a project reaches 100% of its funding goal.
Is the money I donate to projects on Citizinvestor tax deductible?
Yes! Under section 170 of the United States. Internal Revenue Code, it states that contributions made to political subdivisions for exclusively public purposes are categorized as charitable contributions. However, with all tax matters, we recommend that you consult a CPA.
Are there any transaction fees included in the project goal amount?
Each project's total cost includes a 3% credit card transaction fee and a 5% fee for Citizinvestor's services. These fees are only paid if the project reaches 100% of its funding goal.
