The MWB/QPL Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. All donations support the Quincy Public Library.
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.
Please call Kathleen Helsabeck at 217-223-1309, ext. 204 to make a donation or to get more information.
