-Planned Giving-

Long term contributions through creative and flexible options can be your special gift to the Cazenovia Public Library.  Through planned giving, you will help to ensure the Library’s place as a critical anchor, central to the Village of Cazenovia.  Your planned giving will help fund important future financial needs for help in maintaining the buildings, archives, museum and technology infrastructure.
There are several recognized contribution methods:

  • Bequests:  A bequest provides a gift for the Library in your will.
  • Retirement Assets:  By designating the Library as the recipient of any benefits remaining in your retirement plan at the time of your death, you may effectively reduce the taxes on those assets.
  • Real Estate:  A special arrangement called a retained life estate allows you to make the unique and special gift of your home to the Library at any time, without affecting your current lifestyle.
  • Life Insurance:  You can make the Library the beneficiary of a policy, or, if you choose to change the beneficiary and ownership of an existing policy to the Library, you can receive an income tax deduction for the current value or basis of the policy.

Need more information on our planned giving program?  We would like the opportunity to meet with you and discuss how you can make a significant impact on our future.  Please call Elisha Davies, Library Director, 315.655.9322.
