Make a Financial Contribution

For those who want to make a financial contribution to the Library, we offer several alternatives:
 

Annual Donor Appeal supports the library’s daily operations

  • Make an online donation to VGPL using your American Express, Discover, Visa or MasterCard. Just click the secure Donate button at right. Give once, several times a year or plan a donation each month.

  • Print a donation form and mail with your check.

  • Find out if your employer matches donations of current or retired employees. Among the companies currently matching gifts to VGPL are ADP, Caterpillar Foundation, IBM Matching Grants Program, Reynolds American Foundation and UBS Matching Gift Program.


Sustaining Fund builds interest that help sustain the library’s future

  • Donate to VGPL's future with a gift to our Sustaining Fund. Use the Donate Now! button at right or send a check to the library; be sure to mark your gift "Sustaining Fund."


Ongoing Fundraisers are a fun and easy way to help the library keep the doors open

  • Purchase books and videos from our for-sale shelves and at our twice-a-year book sales.

  • Make your Amazon purchases by going through our website. All your purchases are confidential and Amazon sends a donation of 4-6% of your purchase price back to the library. Click the Amazon button at right and see how easy it is.


Consider making a Legacy Gift to ensure VGPL’s future

  • Make a gift as part of your Estate Planning, either a dollar amount or a percentage of your estate.

  • Set up a Charitable Remainder Trust; you use these assets during your lifetime.

  • Set up a Charitable Lead Trust; in this option VGPL receives a yearly income for a specified period of time and then the assets return to you or your designated beneficiaries.

  • Give a gift of real property now. If desired, you may retain use of the property during your lifetime.

  • Make VGPL the beneficiary of a life insurance policy, or transfer a paid-up policy to VGPL.

  • Name VGPL as the beneficiary of an IRA or other retirement plan assets.

  • Make a donation from your IRA account. 

  • Donate stock or other property.

 

A legacy gift may offer significant tax benefits to you now and to your estate in the future. Please consult your financial advisor on how these benefits may apply to your particular situation.

VGPL has recently learned that the CARES act includes changes for the 2020 tax year. It will allow some individual taxpayers to deduct donations to charity of up to $300 on their 2020 federal tax return, even though they take the standard deduction. Married-filing-jointly taxpayers will get an above-the-line deduction of up to $600. Please consult your tax adviser for more information.
