Great Libraries Make Great Communities...

The Legacy Society is a dedicated group of people who all have one thing in common - they love libraries. All members of the Legacy Society plan to leave a legacy by making planned gift to one or all of our 13 York County Libraries.

What is planned giving?

In its most basic form, planned giving is a type of donation that allows you to make a gift to libraries in the future. The most common planned gifts include bequests in wills, life insurance and residual interest in real estate. The great thing about planned gifts is that they do not require you to make any contributions today. Your gift intention is simply created today, but the actual gift will be made in the future.

Why should you leave a legacy?

Donors choose to leave a legacy for many reasons. Some want their memory to live on, other simply want to support a library because it is an organization that is near and dear to their heart. In all cases your membership in the Legacy Society will ensure that a library can continue to do what it does best – provide quality public service to the people of York County through innovation, education and a commitment to accessible collections, services and programs.

The Legacy Society will acknowledge and honor those who have recognized the special role libraries play in York County, and who are committed to ensuring sustainable library funding for years to come.

For more information on Leaving a Legacy for York County Libraries please contact  Georg Sheets or your local library.
