Planned gifts to charitable organizations like the Dauphin County Library System can allow you to create a legacy within the community while also considering your own personal financial objectives. Depending on your needs and circumstances, planned gifts can offer tax benefits and create an income flow for the rest of your life. For more information about planned giving, contact the DCLS Community Relations Director Karen Cullings at 717.234.4961 ext. 104 or Click Here to send an email.
Remembering DCLS in your will or living trust is a popular way to invest in library service for the future. See Sample Bequest Language below for an idea of what to include in your will or trust. If you are interested in including the library in your will and are willing to let us know, we’d love to hear from you so that we can be sure we have an accurate record of how you’d like your gift to be used. Click here to email Karen Cullings or feel free to call her at 717.234.4961 ext. 104.
Often, donating some or all of the assets from your IRA, 401 (k), or other qualified retirement plan is a good choice for giving. You can make gifts during your lifetime or name DCLS as a beneficiary on your plan.
