Legacy Gifts:

As local government budgets tighten and technology starts to play a greater role in our lives it is essential to have the vision and resources to maintain the long term sustainability of our local library. To provide a vehicle for this support the Friends have established a Legacy Fund. Here people who want to make a planned charitable gift can get the information and support they may need to make this a simple process.  There are a number of ways a Donor can make a legacy gift:
  •     Annuity for Long Term sustainability          IMG_0009.jpg
  •     Outright Gifts
  •     Bequests
  •     Charitable Remainder Trust
  •     Charitable Lead Trust
  •     Retirement Plan
  •     Living Trust
The Friends have partnered with the Sonoma Valley Fund, a group of non-profit investors helping promote legacy giving by educating and providing the tools necessary for the success of legacy programs and specifically, how you can make a planned charitable gift to the Friends of the Sonoma Valley Library for the future sustainability of the Library.
