Ways To Give

Many of these options may have a tax benefit. An attorney or tax adviser can provide guidance about giving to the Foundation in ways that are best for your situation.

Cash Gifts
Gifts of cash (usually credit card, check, or electronic transfer) are the simplest, most direct means of support for the Foundation. Gifts may be made outright or pledged over a period of five years.

Matching Gifts
Many employers will match their employees’ contributions to charitable, non-profit groups. As these programs vary by employer, donors may contact their human resources departments for details.  Please enclose your employers' matching form along with your contribution.

Tribute and Memorial Gifts
Gifts “In Memory of” or “In Honor of” are a great way to pay tribute to that special someone and also support the Foundation.

Appreciated Property
Gifts of appreciated property (Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds; Real Estate; Art; Collectables) that have increased in value under your ownership continue to be an excellent and popular method of making gifts.

Planned Gifts
Please consider creating a bequest to the Foundation in your Will or Trust. A planned gift to the Library ensures the future of the library and its’ programs, as well as creates your own legacy of support.

Life Insurance Gifts
Life insurance policies that have a cash value may be donated to the Foundation. You can designate the Foundation as one of the beneficiaries of the policy.

Corporate Sponsorships
Corporations are encouraged to consider a corporate sponsorship. Sponsorships can provide visibility and corporate philanthropy benefits.

Volunteers are people who provide their time and services to a charity free of charge. If you’re interested in getting more involved we welcome you as a volunteer.
