Make a planned gift

Initiatives & Campaigns

Ensure that your support will live on as an ongoing gift to future generations by including the Denver Public Library Friends Foundation in your estate plans. Making a planned gift provides needed resources for future library users, and extends the joy you have experienced at the Library to others.

A legacy gift represents your values and creates a lasting impact. You may choose to designate support for general purposes of the Library, or your favorite section or function of the Library, such as children's programming, collections, or library staff development. You will feel deeply rewarded by the knowledge that your investment will have a beneficial impact on our community for years to come.

There are a variety of ways to make a charitable, planned gift. One of the simplest is to give through your will or living trust. You can also make the Library a beneficiary of your retirement plan or a life insurance policy.

If you have already made a legacy gift, please let us know; if you intend to make a planned gift or have any questions, please call Dawn Schipper at 720-865-3453 so we can provide more information.
