Planned Giving


Through various planned giving methods you can help perpetuate the library's mission in future years. Such planning can allow you to make larger gifts than you might be able to make during your lifetime, and may offer certain tax benefits, such as lowering estate taxes.

And, by including the library in your estate planning you will be providing a living legacy for a cause dear to you. If you contemplate such a gift, please consult with your financial and legal advisors, and discuss the matter with the Library Director.

Bequests: These are typically made through a will; the library receives the gift only after the death of the donor. The will may specify an item to be donated, a dollar amount, or a percentage or portion of the entire estate.

Beneficiary designations: The library may be designated a beneficiary of life insurance policies payable-on-death accounts, or qualified retirement plans such as IRA, 401(k), 403(b), and Employee Stock Ownership plans.

Other planned giving methods, such as the currently popular charitable gift annuities or charitable remainder trusts.
