Support Your Library
A great public library is essential to the extraordinary quality of life we enjoy in the Gallatin Valley. Become a donor to the Bozeman Public Library Foundation and create an enduring legacy within your community. Your donations go toward adult education, outreach, children’s programming, as well as music and arts events.
There are several ways you can make a donation to The Bozeman Public Library Foundation. Gifts of any size are appreciated. We’ll keep your personal and financial information completely confidential.
Give a Gift of Appreciated Stock
Making a gift to BPLF with an appreciated asset such as stocks, bonds, or mutual funds may offer advantages such as avoiding capital gains tax. You may also be able to give more this year without impacting your personal cash flow. Gifting appreciated securities in place of cash can be a tax-wise alternative.
Consider a Gift through a Will or Trust
One of the simplest ways to ensure your Library stays strong forever is to designate BPLF as a beneficiary in your will or trust. It’s easy to do and can be revoked at any time.
Designate BPLF as your Beneficiary
You may also want to consider naming BPLF as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, annuity, life insurance or other financial accounts.
Make a Grant from a Donor Advised Fund
Consider making a grant to BPLF from your DAF account. It’s easy to do and you will have a greater impact on your community library!
Take Advantage of Matching Gift Benefits
Your employer may offer matching gift opportunities to have your personal contributions matched. Your contributions can be automatically deducted and matched as a one-time gift or as a recurring gift.
Become a Business Sponsor
Businesses can support a number of programs and events at the Library through a sponsorship. You help us bring great programs to the community, and your business receives public recognition.
Honorary & Memorial Gifts
Honor a friend or loved one’s birthday, wedding, anniversary, or other special occasion with a gift to Bozeman Public Library. You can also dedicate a memorial butterfly in our beautiful new Labyrinth space. Learn more
