Our libraries are sources of support, connection and information for everyone in the community. Our holdings, programs and resources are expanding every day, but public funding has not kept up. Support this year’s programs and acquisitions, and allow us to better serve the increasing numbers of people using the libraries for years to come.
Does your company offer matching gift? We’ve compiled a list of some companies that offer matching gifts. Please consider asking your company if they will match your gift even if they’re not listed here.
Give to the Annual Fund
Your gift to the Annual Fund ensures that:
• Families connect with one another at story times, performances and special events.
• School-age children meet friends in art, technology, and science classes or while enjoying books, puzzles and games.
• Teens connect in their own space, where they can socialize, chat, or read, and participate in programs catered to their interests and needs.
• Adults borrow the latest best-seller; participate in book groups, bridge games, mahjong and chess tournaments; and enjoy authors and other speakers.
Annual Fund gifts support the daily operations of Tredyffrin Public Library and Paoli Library, and can be designated for either library.

More Ways to Give
Planned Giving and Legacy Gifts
If the future of Tredyffrin Township Libraries matters to you, use the present to invest in the library’s future. Consider including the libraries in your will, trust, estate plans, or as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement fund. Learn more about Planned Giving and Legacy Gifts.
The Tredyffrin Township Libraries’ endowment is a financial asset that provides an ongoing, reliable revenue stream that supports operations and special programs and ensures the libraries’ viability into the future. To guard the libraries’ capacity and allow for facility and program improvements even if public funding should shrink, we must grow our endowment fund principle. A gift to the endowment fund supports the libraries indefinitely.
