Estate and Endowment Planning

Make a lasting gift to the Jacksonville Public Library Foundation in your will or estate plan. Your generosity will have a long-term impact on our mission to provide learning resources and information services to the people of Jacksonville through the Library.

You can do this in several ways:

  • Designate a specific amount or a specific percentage of your estate as a gift to the Jacksonville Public Library Foundation.
  • Name the Jacksonville Public Library Foundation as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
  • Designate part or all of an IRA or retirement plan account.
  • Designate your bequest as an endowment that will support the Library on an annual and on-going basis.

Depending upon your circumstances, you may be able to: reduce income, gift, and estate taxes; secure a source of cash flow for the rest of your life; and/or reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes.

Please let us know if you have already made a provision for us in your will.
