May I donate stocks or securities?

Will I receive a tax receipt for my gift?

Online donations made with a credit card will receive an immediate confirmation and electronic receipt. If you donate by check, you will receive a tax receipt statement for amounts of $250 or more along with a donor acknowledgment letter by mail.

What about corporate matching gifts?

Your employer may have a matching gift program, matching their employees' contributions dollar for dollar. Your $100 gift could be increased very easily in this manner.

Are there other ways I can help?

The library is always looking for volunteers. Applications are available at the Circulation Desk.
