Gift Planning

Ensure that your support will live on as an ongoing gift to future generations by including the Pleasant Valley Library in your estate plans. Making a planned gift provides needed resources for future Library users. Your gift can extend the joy you have experienced at the Library to others, while giving you substantial financial benefits and tax savings.

A legacy gift represents your values and creates a lasting impact. You may choose to designate support for general purposes of the Library, or your favorite section or function of the Library, such as children’s programming, exhibitions, library staff development, etc. Either way, you will feel deeply rewarded by the knowledge that your investment will have a beneficial impact on our community for years to come.

There are a variety of ways to make a charitable, planned gift. One of the simplest is to give through your will or living trust. You can also make the Library a beneficiary of your retirement plan. Please email the director at for more information.
