Donate to the Manchester Public Library Endowment Fund

Your gift to the library though the Manchester Public Library Endowment Fund means the difference between good libraries and great libraries. With private support, we can expand our collections to include more of what patrons want in materials and technology, and serve the needs of children, teens, adults, and people with special needs.

Leave a lasting legacy with a gift or bequest to the Manchester Public Library Endowment Fund.  Click here to donate to our Endowment Fund.

The Manchester Public Library Board of Trustees has joined with The Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque as a way for charitable gifts to be made for the benefit of the Manchester Public Library.  Such gifts shall be specified for the benefit of the Manchester Public Library, shall be administered by the Library Board of Trustees, and the funds shall be deposited with The Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque.

Donors may leave money to the Foundation for the benefit of the Library in two ways:

  • for unrestricted purposes - unrestricted funds are very useful since they make it possible for the Library Board of Trustees to take note of changing conditions and needs and to assist with emergencies
  • for special needs or projects

If you have a professional with whom you're working, like a financial planner, lawyer, accountant or insurance agent, please talk with him or her about leaving a gift for the benefit of the Manchester Public Library.  A professional can also tell you about the tax benefits of planned gifts.  You may also contact the Library Board of Trustees:
