A charitable bequest is one of the easiest ways for you to leave a lasting impact on something you value–the Waynesboro Public Library.Through your will or other estate plan, you can name the Friends of the Waynesboro Library as the beneficiary of a portion of your estate or of special assets in your estate. In addition to supporting the Library, your charitable bequest may lessen the burden of estate taxes on your family.

If you wish, you may create a separate fund named for yourself or in honor of another that you want to memorialized. Named funds remain visible in the Friends promotional material and on the website because of the projects they support.This visibility encourages others to give.

You can leave a bequest in several ways:

  • You can gift a specific dollar amount or percentage of your estate.
  • You can designate the Friends as a beneficiary of part or all of the remainder of your retirement plan.
  • You can designate the Friends as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
  • You gave gift special assets such as securities, real estate, or tangible personal property such as a car, boat, rare book collection, or other personal property. or asset.
  • You can gift a percentage of the remainder of your estate after the payment of any other bequests and expenses.
