Norwich Tribute Fund

Wrapped gift

A gift

How does a library position itself to encourage bequests and contributions? The Norwich Public Library developed a quiet brochure to do the job.

Directors may want to have a lawyer review and offer background so the board is prepared to work with donors. The Vermont Community Foundation offers support to organizations like libraries who are setting up contribution vehicles. Contact them for help managing an endowment or creating planned giving.

Use the Scribd link to read the brochure, particularly the inside. A donor could make the gift without doing anything more than filling in the form.
