Types of Gifts

If you have questions regarding any of these gift types, please feel free to contact us at 541-312-1027.

Tribute Gifts

You can make a gift in honor or memory of a loved one or to celebrate an occasion. Acknowledgement is sent to the person being honored or to the family of the person for whom a tribute gift has been made.

Gifts of Stock

A donation of appreciated stock provides you an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift.

Planned Giving

A planned gift to DPLF will allow you to create a legacy for library services while meeting your own financial and personal objectives. In addition to continuing your support for DPLF, you may be able to reduce income, gift, and estate taxes; secure a source of cash flow for the remainder of your life; or reduce/eliminate capital gains taxes.

If you already have included the Deschutes Public Library Foundation in your estate plans, or are considering a planned gift, please contact us at 541-312-1027.

Endowment Fund

The Deschutes Public Library Foundation has established a permanent endowment fund through The Oregon Community Foundation to meet the future needs of the Deschutes Public Library.
