This can be done by including the Dowdell Library Foundation in your estate plan or by making a gift to an endowment.
Planned giving is a way for you to contribute money to the Library Foundation while simultaneously realizing some of your estate and financial planning goals. Estate planning instruments include wills, trusts, gift annuities, IRAs, real estate and insurance plans that transfer assets at the end of the donor’s life.
Unless otherwise designated, planned gifts are added to our endowments funds which are invested strategically to preserve their original value and the income is used to support Library work. All gifts of $5000 or more will be honored on our Major Donors wall plaque.
