Your Chance to Leave a Legacy

Your gift to the ALEF helps provide for the long-term financial strength and security of one of the area’s premier cultural institutions.

Every gift helps, no matter what the size, and all are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Planned Giving offers a variety of ways to provide a future basis of support for the Fund and Library. You can name the Endowment Fund as a beneficiary of your retirement assets or life insurance policy.  Or you can establish a Charitable Remainder Trust to receive periodic payments during your lifetime and then pass the “remainder” on to the Fund.

Corporate Giving demonstrates your company’s commitment to one of our community’s most precious resources and leaves a lasting impression on your employees.  Companies that offer a Matching Gifts program allow their employees an opportunity to participate as well.

One-time or Sustaining Gifts as a gift of cash or a pledge is always welcome.  Ongoing monthly, quarterly or annual gifts allow you to spread your contribution out over time.

Honorary or Memorial Gifts are a meaningful way to convey sympathy to the bereaved, memorialize a loved one, commemorate a special occasion, or honor someone who cares about learning and the power of words.  Pay tribute to a friend or family member, and we will send a card to a designated individual notifying them of your generosity.
