A tribute gift to TCPL memorializes the past and honors the present, while ensuring a future for an institution and ideals you and your loved ones believe in. What better way to celebrate a special event, honor someone you respect, or memorialize a life that has impacted you? A gift to TCPL is an excellent way of commemorating an important person or occasion.

Tribute gifts support the Annual Fund in the area of collections and can be tailored to suit the interests and passions of those you wish to honor or memorialize. 

Bookplates commemorating the gift and the person or event honored or memorialized are inserted into children's or adults' books, creating a striking tribute that will endure. We will also send a special card to the person you're honoring or the family of the person you are memorializing, to let them know of your gift. 

Special funds can also be established, by you or by a group, that will go towards the purchase of a collection of materials. And, for an ongoing tribute, you can establish an endowment fund, which generates annual income to allow yearly additions to the collection at TCPL. Such a gift means your impact, in the name of someone you care about, or in honor of an event that impacted you, will endure.
