Leave a Legacy

Planned giving is a wonderful way to designate part of your estate to supporting the library for years to come. Legacies come in all sizes and structures; each is important to our library’s future!  With every donation, there may be tax benefits. Together with your financial advisor, we would love to a part of your future plans.

Simple ways to create your legacy:

  • A gift of cash, securities, or property for immediate or future use by the library

  • A bequest in your will or living trust to the Sun Prairie Public Library Foundation

  • Name the Sun Prairie Public Library Foundation as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan proceeds

  • Create a Charitable Gift Annuity that will generate an income for you now, and provide funds later for the Foundation.

Unrestricted gifts enable the library to survey its needs and use the earnings from these gifts where they are most needed.  The donor may also specify the purpose for which earnings from the gift are to be used, as long as that purpose is consistent with the Library’s goals and policies. 

To learn about legacy gifts, please contact the Foundation Past President, Aaron Oppenheimer, at (608) 825-1193 or contact us for more information.
