Workplace Giving 

Employee Matching Gifts are donations a company makes to match its employees’ charitable contributions. Employee matching gifts are typically dollar-for-dollar but some companies go even further by tripling or quadrupling their employees’ donations.  

How to have your gift matched: 

Step 1: Make a donation to York County Libraries. 

Step 2: Ask your employer if they match gifts. 

Step 3: Follow the instructions specific to your employer to have your gift matched. 

Gifts of Stock and Wire Transfer

In-Kind Gifts 

York County Libraries gratefully accepts donations of material goods and non-cash contributions, which are in line with its mission and programming. Accepted donations, at the discretion of the individual library, include: 

  1. Items, including food, to be used for events or programs sponsored by York County Libraries or Friends Groups, e.g. items donated for a raffle, to be sold at auction, to be given to participants in a library-sponsored program (e.g. SummerQuest). 
  2. Advertising (print, billboard, radio time, television time) for which there has been no charge to York County Libraries. 
  3. A donation of services. 
    Note: Contributed services cannot be counted as a gift and do not qualify as a charitable tax deduction to the donor. However, a donor of services may be able to deduct expenses incurred while performing said services. In such cases, the donor should be advised to consult with a tax accountant. 

Note Regarding Tax Credit: It is the sole responsibility of the donor to determine the value of a contributed item; York County Libraries staff members are unable to assign a value to the donated item(s). 

Please contact your local York County Library to discuss your in-kind donation.
