Library Endowments

Public funding supports libraries, but often it is private gifts that make them flourish.

A donation in your name to a Township of Uxbridge Public Library Endowment Fund will benefit Uxbridge forever. When planning your community bequests please consider making a lasting gift to your Library as part of your legacy.

So what is an Endowment Fund?

An Endowment Fund can play a key role in meeting the needs of the future. By keeping the principal intact and only spending the interest, it becomes a permanent source of seed money for new, innovative projects as well as current programmes. An Endowment Fund gift can also enable the individual donor to expand their philanthropic dollars by maximizing tax deductions and investing those dollars wisely. Your principal investment will continue to grow and generate further investment income every year. The Endowment Fund will be invested locally to help ensure the future financial health of your Library.

How can I donate to the endowment funds?

Everyone can help to build the endowment funds and help ensure the future of library services here in Uxbridge. Donations can be made through the Township of Uxbridge Public Library. Please note that cheques should be made payable to the Township of Uxbridge Public Library with a notation designating the endowment fund of your choice.
