Sharing your passion for lifelong learning and literacy

A Planned Gift to York County Libraries will benefit generations to come. There are many ways to make a Planned Gift to your local library.


Including your local library in your will or trust is a thoughtful way to benefit future generations. You can specify an amount, percentage or residue from your estate to benefit your library.


Naming your library as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, annuity, CD or retirement plan can be an effective way to eliminate estate taxes.



Donating property to your library may provide immediate tax benefits and eliminate estate taxes. Coin collections, jewelry and art may have donor value and benefit the library.



Establishing trusts that pay yearly income to you or the library may provide estate tax benefits.



Donating assets from your IRA, 401(k), or other qualified retirement plan to benefit your local library can be a good choice for giving.

If you have already arranged a Planned Gift to your local library, please let us know. We would like to honor your support and encourage others to follow your lead. We will retain anonymity of your gift, if preferred.
