WHAT WILL YOUR LEGACY BE?

Those who love the Springfield Public Library have the power to strengthen and protect it—today, tomorrow, and into the future by making a planned gift.

A Planned Gift to the Springfield Public Library Foundation:

Makes a personally significant gift that speaks to your belief in the power of knowledge, made freely available to all.

Saves on gift and estate taxes.

Reduces or avoids capital gains taxes.

Passes assets on to family members at reduced tax costs.

Leaves a legacy without giving up assets.

Shares your gift plan with others, encouraging even more support.

A bequest is the easiest way to make a planned gift.

To make a gift in your will or trust, or by beneficiary designation, please use the following suggested language:

“I give [percent of my estate, or dollars, or description of asset] to Springfield Public Library Foundation, a nonprofit organization located at 225 5th Street, Springfield, OR 97477, for its general use and purpose.”

Or, contact us so that we may work with you and your attorney to craft language that meets your specific goals and needs.
