The Chatham Area Public Library District Friends Foundation was established to enlist public, business and governmental interest in and support for the Chatham Area Public Library District, raise and expend funds, to encourage gifts to be set aside in a fund for investment and to establish a fund to permit contributors to make tax deductible gifts for current investment and future use by the Foundation for the welfare of the library.

The Friends Foundation Board is made up of members from the Library Board of Trustees, Friends of the Library Board and community-at-large members.  Ex-Officios of the Foundation are the President of the Board of Trustees, Chair of the Friends of the Library Board and the Library Director.
