Donations

Donations:

Donations may take a variety of forms, including simply mailing a check to the Library.*  Regardless of the size, donations are truly appreciated.  Here are some other ways donations may be made to the Whippanong Library.  Thank you for your support!

Please read our fundraising campaign letter.  Thank you to our generous donors who responded to our letter.

Bookplate dedication

You can dedicate a new library book, already owned by the Library, in a person’s honor in two ways.  For $20 per title, you may either choose the subject area and the Library will select the book and insert a bookplate, or you select the book.  The bookplate will show the name of the donor and/or the name of the person or people being honored, and the occasion:  adult birthday, anniversary, promotion, graduation, retirement, achievement, or in memoriam.

Birthday Book Club bookplate dedication:

The Whippanong Library Birthday Book Club allows anyone to donate a book to the Library in honor of a special child in their life, from birth through age 17.

Consult the list of titles from the Birthday Collection, select the item, and complete and submit the form with payment.  The list is also available as hardcopy in the Library.  You may purchase the book for a minimum donation of $20.00 per title.  A special bookplate with the child’s and your name will be inserted to commemorate the birthday.  The birthday child will receive a card from the Library saying you purchased a book for the Library in his or her honor.

 

Recognized Library Supporter

Be more than a Whippanong Library cardholder – be a Supporter!  Supporters have the unique opportunity to celebrate the Library with others.  The significance of being a Recognized Library Supporter runs deep. Your backing helps us maintain and offer free services, programs, and quality physical and electronic collections. When you become a Supporter of the Library, you join a group of generous and compassionate individuals, the cornerstones of the township and of Whippanong Library.  Supporter levels are: Page, Patron, Maya Nordling, and Melville Dewey.  For a further breakdown of the levels and the benefits of each, please click here.  The library thanks these cardholders who have become Supporters.  Not a cardholder? Not a problem!  You don’t need a Whippanong Library card to be a Whippanong Library Recognized Library Supporter.

Philanthropic

Many companies set aside funds for philanthropic purposes and allocate the money through their gift matching programs.  These programs allow employees (and often their spouses or company retirees) to make a contribution to a non-profit organization, which is then matched by a corporate gift.  Matching levels vary, but regardless of the match, these gifts are greatly appreciated by the library.  Although procedures for matching gift programs vary, matching gift forms are usually obtained through the employer’s intranet or human resources office.

Legacy

Consider leaving a legacy by naming the Whippanong Library in your will or estate plans, including charitable annuities and trusts as well as life insurance and retirement plan gifts.  Be sure to consult your tax advisor and/or attorney first.
