Leave a Legacy

"What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."

                                                                                              ~ Jane Goodall

Turn a simple plan for your future into a lasting legacy. Planned gifts to the Library have a clear impact and speak to a personal belief in the power of knowledge, made freely available to one and all.        


To make a planned gift, you can:


Planned gifts make it possible for you to increase your spendable income, complement your retirement income and reduce your tax burden. A planned gift offers you a way to distribute part, or all, of your estate to the Library, ensuring the highest standards of library service for generations to come. We are happy to work with you to determine how your gift will be used, so that your contribution honors what has been most impactful in your life.  


We encourage you to seek the assistance of your personal legal and financial advisors to determine the most advantageous means of supporting TCPL through planned giving. 


Please contact Suzanne Smith Jablonski, Executive Director of the Tompkins County Public Library Foundation, at (607) 272-4557 ext. 231 or to discuss your gift.
