Contributions may be given as tributes or memorial gifts, and all donors, unless they prefer to be anonymous, will be acknowledged in a Book of Benefactors. Donors of $2,500 and up will be recognized, in alphabetical order, on a donor wall in the new addition. Donors of $5,000 and more also may choose to designate their contribution to sponsor an area or item in the new Library and will be acknowledged with appropriate signage at the room or on the item they have selected.
Donate via PayPal here. Please include a note if you wish to donate in honor or in memory of a loved one.
Donating stock & retirement assets
A gift of appreciated securities will entitle you to a charitable deduction for the current market value of the asset. You will avoid capital gains taxes as well.
Also, donating directly from retirement assets to a qualifying nonprofit continues to be an effective charitable giving strategy. The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016 (IRA Charitable Rollover) allows you to make direct tax-free donations from Individual Retirement Accounts to qualified charitable organizations.
