Supporting the Endowment: The endowment is a long-term investment fund that supports the future of the Library. Each year the Foundation uses funds from the endowment’s earnings and interest to fund library services and materials, while assuring that the principal remains in place.
Tribute Gifts: Some of our donors give to celebrate birthdays or special events or to remember friends and family members at their passing. A tax-deductible donation of $30 or more allows a library staff member to select a book or books to commemorate a loved one, inscribing a memorial book plate with the honoree’s name. Contact Jill Siewert at (303) 335-4812 for more information.
Planned Giving: A gift through your will or living trust contributes to the long-term sustainability of the Library Foundation’s endowment and is a commitment to the future of library service to area residents. After consulting with your attorney and financial planner, please let us know if you intend a charitable contribution to the Library Foundation to help ensure that future generations will know the rewards of an excellent public library.
