Many companies set aside funds for philanthropic purposes and allocate the money through their gift matching programs. These programs allow employees (and often their spouses or company retirees) to make a contribution to a non-profit organization, which is then matched by a corporate gift. Matching levels vary, but regardless of the match, these gifts are greatly appreciated by the library. Although procedures for matching gift programs vary, matching gift forms are usually obtained through the employer’s human resources office.

Make a Memorial or Honor Gift

Giving a gift that makes a difference fits any occasion. Honor someone today by supporting your library!

We will notify your loved one or their family of your generosity as you indicate. A memorial or honor gift is a unique way to celebrate special occasions or recognize someone important to you. The opportunities are endless:

  • Birthdays
  • Memorials
  • Bar or Bat Mitzvah
  • Graduation
  • Teacher
  • Holidays
  • Honoring a business associate
  • In lieu of party gifts
  • Weddings and anniversaries
  • any occasion or accomplishment

If you are dedicating a library book, the book will feature a bookplate that will display the name of the donor and/or the name of the person(s) being honored for a specific occasion or in memoriam.

Checks may be made payable to Memorial Library of Nazareth and Vicinity, 295 East Center Street, Nazareth, PA 18064. If mailing your check, please indicate your honor/memorial intentions and if there is anyone we should notify. Thank you!

Planned Gift

Ensure your donations will provide for future generations by including the Memorial Library of Nazareth and Vicinity in your estate plans.

A legacy gift not only represents your values, it creates a lasting effect. Designate support for the area of the library that means the most to you (e.g., direct your donation towards a specific collection, department, or general development); and know that this investment will have a beneficial impact on our community for years to come.

The two easiest ways to make a planned gift is to give through your will/living trust, or make the Library a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy.

If you have already made a legacy gift, or have any questions about planned gifts, please contact Jill Silvius (610-759-4932) to obtain additional information.
