Why it is Important
Why give to the library?
The library may use your gifts for materials, equipment, special programs, furnishings and long -term improvements.
Does the library only accept cash donations?
No, all forms of giving are welcome, such as stocks and bonds, real estate, personal property, wills, bequests and life insurance.
Why a Trust?
Trusts offer income tax savings while increasing the library’s ability to serve the community. Several types of charitable trust are recognized by the I.R.S. They allow the donor to: care for dependents, receive tax advantages and improve the community through the library.
If I give directly to the library who decides on how to use my undesignated gift?
The Girard Public Library Board of Trustees will administer the funds.
