How to Give

The Foundation welcomes and appreciates gifts of any size. Gifts can be made in many ways including cash donations, bequests through a will, securities or insurance policies. They may be earmarked for annual operations or special projects and materials or may be “unrestricted.”

Larger gifts may also be made to an endowment fund through bequests or deferred contributions. Endowment funds have the ability to fund programs long-term, so your gift tomorrow can keep on giving to future generations. We recommend that you consult your attorney when considering any sizable gifts, especially through bequests.

Help to maintain the outstanding resource you have in the Drake Public Library with your contribution to the Drake Public Library Foundation. Ensure the future of the library for you and your community.
