Planned Donations


By providing a gift to the Greater Sudbury Public Library in your will, you will provide support for library services and programs in the future.

Gifts in Kind

With the offering of services, programs and special events, the library often looks to community businesses to support our programs through the donation of gits-in-kind. Gifts-in-kind can take the form of products or services donated to the library in exchange for a tax receipt issued for the fair market value of your donation. Your gift will be recognized in the promotional materials used to promote the service or program.

Designated Donations:

You can allocate your donation to whichever cause is closest to your heart, or you can make a donation and the Library will allocate the funds towards our greatest need.

You may have other causes and reasons to support the Library. You can allocate your donation to any part of the Library, whether it be to a specific collection, service or branch.

Recognizing Your Gift

For each donation, the Library will send a card(s) acknowledging your gift to the organization, business, family or person(s) of your choice.

You will receive a tax receipt for any gift over $10.

For a gift of $25 or more towards our collections, a distinctive book placed in the book(s) you helped purchase.

Your gift will be recognized on our website on an annual basis.
