Monetary Donations and Bequests

We encourage and welcome, gifts, endowment funds, and bequests.

Matching Gift Programs

By checking with your employer, former employer, or a board you may serve on, you may discover that the company or organization will match any contribution you make to the Menomonee Falls Public Library.  Many companies offer a matching gift program, including some that will double your gift.

Planned Giving and Endowments

As you make sound decisions for your financial future, you can also ensure the growth of organizations that make a difference in your community.  You can make a significant charitable impact at the Menomonee Falls Public Library by structuring a gift that reduces your tax liabilities while permanently endowing services, events, and education that you and your family have enjoyed and would like to share with the future. Check with your investment counselor for more information on planned giving.

Bequests and wills are the most prominent sources of planned gifts.

Often, donating some or all of the assets from your IRA, 401(k) or other qualified retirement plan is a good choice for giving.  You can make gifts during your lifetime or name MFPL as a beneficiary on your plan.
