Donating to the library
The Westport Library relies heavily on financial gifts to continue its service to the Westport community and its visitors. Each year over two-thirds of the library’s operating expenses are met through a combination of fund-raising events and private gifts.
There are numerous tax-deductible ways to give:
- Many library supporters make yearly gifts.
- Some elect to make large gifts to endow a particular service or our general fund.
- Others have made their gift a part of their will so that they can continue to help the library in perpetuity.
- And there are Memorial and Tribute Gifts:
Honor someone with a gift to the library. Tribute gifts might be made for birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions. Gifts in memory of loved ones are also fitting tributes. Books or other materials might be designated, and in addition to acknowledging receipt of gifts, the library will provide acknowledgment to honorees where appropriate.
If you would like to know more about ways you can help the library continue to provide quality services to the community, or if you would like information on giving memorial and tribute gifts, bequests, and transfers of stock, please contact the library. We would be honored to help you plan your support. Our full contact information can be found here.
