Planned Giving & Endowment Fund
The Oliver Wolcott Society recognizes individuals who support the Library by including it in their estate plans. Over the years, generous annual contributions and planned gifts, including outright bequests, have helped the Library provide excellence in library services. Today, earnings from planned gifts pay for a large portion of the Library’s annual budget. The Library’s Finance Committee has established rigorous investment and spending policies. These policies insure that planned gift not only support the Library’s services now, but also grow over time to finance library activities into the future.
