Donate to the Endowment Trust
The Endowment can accept or arrange gifts such as:
- Credit Card

- Life Insurance
- Charitable Gift Annuities
- Charitable Remainder Trusts
- Other estate plans recommended by your attorney or financial advisor
For questions regarding gifts to the Endowment Trust:
Contact the Library Director, Alison Trautmann, at 717-533-6555 ext. 3715 or email@example.com
Before making a gift, consult with your financial advisor or attorney about tax implications and gifts, investments, and estate plans that can maximize the benefits of the contribution.
A $5,000 gift or more is named on a lobby plaque. We can work with donors who are interested in landscape, book, or furnishings gifts.
There are many tax advantages, including income, gift and estate charitable tax deductions. For example, it may be possible to avoid capital gains taxes when you donate actual stock instead of the cash from a stock sale, or your will bequest can be deductible from the taxable portion of your estate.
In addition, donors who set up gift annuities or similar funds can actually receive income from their investment while benefiting the Library at the same time.
