Mary Weems Foundation


The Mary Weems Barton/Quincy Public Library Foundation was established in 1997 following a bequest from Mary Weems Barton.

The Foundation's purpose is to accept, manage, and solicit donations and bequests for the sole use of the Quincy Public Library. Funds are used to support and enhance QPL material, equipment, and capital improvements. The Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization.

Donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. All donations support the Quincy Public Library.

Planned Giving

Planned giving is an effective way to give back to the Quincy community and to insure Library services for future generations. The MWB/QPL Foundation accepts bequests, beneficiary designations, gifts of life insurance, and Payable on Death provisions. Planned giving may have positive tax implications for the donor. Donors should consult an accountant or tax attorney for the most effective way to make a contribution.

Memorial and Honor Gifts

Your gift of cash, bequest, or endowments may be made in honor of or in memory of another person. Simply tell us who you are honoring when you make your donation.

Memorial Garden Bricks

Purchasing an engraved brick for the Library’s Donor Recognition Garden on the Library’s north lawn is another way to honor a loved one.
