Donating to the library can happen in several ways. You can donate money, stock, or include us in your estate plan.
For monetary donations, you can choose to use Paypal, or make a direct donation by check at any of the library branches. If you wish to donate stock, please contact your financial advisor on the best way for you to do that.
The library also has a designated endowment fund held at the Bay Area Community Foundation. Please contact them directly if you are interested in donating that way. (989) 893-4438
Including the Bay County Library System in your estate plan can be as simple as making a provision in your will or trust. You can do this by designating a either specific amount or a specific percentage of your estate as a gift to BCLS. You can also name BCLS as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan.
Here are a few options…
- Designate a specific amount or a specific percentage of your estate as a gift to BCLS.
- Name BCLS as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
- Designate part--or all--of an IRA or retirement plan account to BCLS.
- Designate your bequest as an endowment that will support the Library System on an annual and on-going basis.
Please have a conversation with your financial advisor on the best way to do this.
Your support will ensure that we can continue to enrich the lives of our friends and neighbors, support families, and empower our community.
