A strong public library is the foundation upon which a community can preserve the past, empower lives today and build for the future. Our goal is to provide support:
- for projects that encourage children and young adults to cultivate a life-long enthusiasm for reading and learning
- to continue to support collections, programs, and services
- to act as advocates to ensure that library services continue on into the future.
No matter the amount, your gift to Way helps to strengthen our services. From large gifts to our endowment to donations to our annual campaign, every gift is vital to the continued success of Way Library.
Shape the Future of Way
Making a bequest to the Way Public Library Foundation & Friends not only is a sign of benevolence, but also is the mark of your desire to help shape the future.
The proceeds of any planned gift can be unrestricted, allowing the Foundation to meet the needs of the Way Public Library as they arise, or can be restricted, offering a way for you to support a program or area in which you are particularly interested.
