Make a lasting gift to the St. Louis Public Library in your will or estate plan. Your generosity will have a long-term impact on our ability to provide Library resources and services to the people of St. Louis.

 • Designate a specific amount or percentage of your estate as a gift to the St. Louis Public Library Foundation.
• Name the St. Louis Public Library Foundation as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy.
• Designate part or all of an IRA or retirement plan account.
• Designate your bequest as an endowment that will support the Library on an annual and on-going basis.

Depending upon your circumstances, you may be able to: reduce income, gift, and estate taxes; secure a source of cash flow for the rest of your life; and/or reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes.

Please let us know if you have already made a provision for us in your will. If you would like additional information on the wide variety of ways you can include the St. Louis Public Library Foundation in your estate plan, please contact Liz Reeves at 314-340-2403 or ereeves@slplfoundation.org.
