Planned Giving
Make a contribution to the Library as part of your will. Planned giving can be tailored to your unique circumstances and provide long-term support to the Library, while saving you significant amounts in estate, gift, and income taxes. Naming the Osterhout Library as a beneficiary of your retirement plan assets, such as an IRA, or your life insurance policy, may also provide tax savings and help protect your assets.

How to Make a Planned Gift
Including the Osterhout Library in your will is simple, even if one has already been created for you. Make changes to your will by executing an amendment called a "codicil." Both your will and codicil should be drafted by a qualified attorney who specializes in estate planning. Your will or codicil should refer to: Osterhout Free Library, 71 S. Franklin Street, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18701.
