Donations

Donations:

Donations may take a variety of forms, including simply mailing a check to the Library.*  Regardless of the amount, 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 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.  A bookplate will be affixed showing 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 memorial.

Facebook

Facebook enables you to name the Whippanong Library Association as the nonprofit to receive donations from your Facebook friends to commemorate your special occasion – graduation, birthday, anniversary, retirement; the list is endless.   Donations may be made in any amount and you set the donations goal.

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.

*If you are mailing a donation check to the library, please make checks payable to Whippanong Library and send to:
