A Library Funded by Donations

This is a good example of a community service funded directly by the community it serves:

PlaneTree Health Library - Our Partners: "PlaneTree San Jos´┐Żreceives support from individuals, organizations, and businesses through direct tax-deductible contributions, grants, and contracts. Our core funding comes from Good Samaritan Hospital. PlaneTree operates under the 501(c)3 umbrella of the Auxiliary of Good Samaritan Hospital, a not-for-profit organization created in 1963."

This library specializes in making information available to people who want (or need) to research their own helath. Often these are people suffering a health crisis.
