Announcing the Hood River Library Legacy Society

 

Did you know you can help ensure the Hood River County Library’s success for future generations?

 

We are pleased to announce the creation of the Hood River Library Legacy Society, honoring those members of our community who have included the Library Foundation in their estate plans. Gifts may be made through your will, life insurance, retirement assets or by making a gift to our Endowment Fund. The Endowment is like a trust fund – 

providing annual support in perpetuity for the vital needs of the Library. While it is currently a modest $100,000 — providing $5000 per year in budget support — we realize that it will need to be substantially larger to protect our county’s libraries from financial peril in an unpredictable future.

Perhaps you have already included the Library District, the Foundation, or the Foundation’s Endowment in your estate plans. If so, please let us know so we can thank you and learn how you would like to be recognized for this gift. Perhaps you’ve been thinking about it. In that case, we encourage you to have a discussion with your estate planner or attorney. If you would like more information, please contact us (foundation@hoodriverlibrary.org) and we can discuss some options. Thanks for remembering our Library and thinking about its future.
