Tribute Gifts

A tribute gift in support of TCPL is a wonderful way to celebrate a special event, honor someone you respect, or memorialize a life that has impacted you. While honoring the past and commemorating the present, a tribute gift helps ensure a future for an institution and ideals you and your loved ones believe in.


When you make a tribute gift, we will also notify the person you're honoring or the family of the person you are memorializing, to let them know of your gift.

Lasting Impact of Your Gift

With a tribute gift of $50 or more, you can also have a commemorative bookplate (see example at right) inserted into a book in the Library's collection. This striking tribute will endure as long as the book remains in TCPL's collection. We can work with you to find an appropriate book.

Special tribute or memorial funds can also be established to allow the purchase of a collection of materials that reflect the essence and impact of the person being honored. And, for an ongoing tribute, you can establish an endowed fund, which generates annual income to allow yearly additions to the collection at TCPL.
