The Foundation provides vital financial support to the Library to maintain the quality of all its collections and services. Proceeds from the annual giving campaign, the endowment fund, Corner Books and special events like Blackie’s Hay Day and the Petrocelli Luncheon enable the Library Director to build outstanding collections and offer exceptional programs to the community. See the Library Web Site here for more information about the Library.

Matching Gifts
Many companies match employee charitable contributions. Please check with your company when making a gift.

Endowment Fund
Gifts to the Endowment Fund are vital to ensure the continuing high quality of the Library and the services it provides. Opportunities to contribute to the endowment fund include:

  • Outright Gifts
    Tax deductible gifts of any size or multi-year pledges to the endowment fund provide immediate benefit. Gifts of real estate, vehicles, securities and life insurance will similarly help the Library and provide a tax deduction. In most cases of appreciated assets, the deduction will be for the full market value with elimination of capital gains taxes.
  • Retirement Plan Assets
    You may designate the Library as a beneficiary of retirement plan assets.
  • Bequests
    A gift in your will or trust helps ensure our future growth
