In Memoriam Gifts

Traditionally when a friend or loved one dies people often send flowers to the family of the deceased to show respect, to demonstrate that they share their loss, and to celebrate a life well-lived. Increasingly, in lieu of flowers, many people prefer to make a donation to a not-for-profit organization as a tangible and permanent way to pay tribute. An In Memoriam donation to the Township of Uxbridge Public Library is a meaningful way to pay tribute to the memory of someone who cared about their community.

When In Memoriam donations are made to the Township of Uxbridge Public Library, we respond to each donor with a personal letter and tax receipt. As well, a letter is sent to the next of kin, keeping them up-to-date with all donations that have been made in memory of their loved one. We will identify the donor but we will not identify the amount given. Upon request, we will also place a bookplate in our collection as a permanent tribute to the deceased.

If you would like to make a donation in memory of a loved one please contact the Chief Executive Officer at 905-852-9747 ext 26, or by e-mail at ahartmann@uxlib.com. Or simply print and complete the In Memoriam Donation form, then bring or mail it to the library with your gift. The Township of Uxbridge Public Library is a registered charity and supports the Donor Bill of Rights. Our Charitable Registration Number is {provided soon}.
