How can I help the Westlake Porter Public Library Foundation?

Giving Now
Cash or stock gifts are simple to make and immediately effective. All cash contributions are tax-deductible (up to 50% of a donor's adjusted gross income.) Appreciated assets can include stocks, bonds, mutual funds and real property, and are tax-deductible up to 30% of adjusted gross income.

Future Giving    choose a tab
Bequest - An outright bequest to the WPPL Foundation is the simplest way to provide for a future gift. The WPPL Foundation can assist with specific bequest language that can be included in your will or trust.
Charitable Gift Annuity - This is an irrevocable gift that returns a stream of payments to the donor or beneficiary. The donor qualifies for a charitable tax deduction for part of the gift, while payments may receive favorable tax treatment.
Life Insurance Policy - Unused life insurance policies make excellent charitable gifts. Please contact the WPPL Foundation for more information.
Charitable Remainder Trusts - These allow donors to make gifts using payment options that best meet their needs. Remainder Trusts are flexible enough to permit use of a variety of assets including cash, securities and real property. The payments also may have some tax benefit to the recipient.
Charitable Lead Trusts - Through these lead trusts, donors can support the charitable needs now, and the remaining assets can be transferred to other individuals or even to themselves at a future date. Assets in the lead trust would come to the WPPL Foundation for a fixed number of years or over a donor's lifetime.
