New Children’s Addition
The East Hampton Library has launched a capital campaign to meet the funding requirements for the new Children’s Addition which includes renovation of the existing structure, new equipment, furnishings and landscaping.
You can invest in the future of the East Hampton Library today by giving a gift that will enable the library to continue providing excellent services to our community for years to come.

Ways of Giving to the East Hampton Library
Cash Gifts: This is the most common form of giving and is as easy as writing a check to the East Hampton Library. Your gift is tax deductible and becomes immediately available to support our important work.
Gifts of Appreciated Securities: If you own long-term securities that have appreciated in value, you may prefer to contribute securities, rather than cash. In this way, you can avoid paying capital gains taxes that would be due if you sold the securities. You can also take a tax deduction for the current fair market value of the securities.
Matching Gifts: More than 1,000 companies and foundations nationwide match their employees’ gifts to charitable organizations such as the East Hampton Library, sometimes doubling or tripling the value of your gift. Please check with your personnel office to see if your employer participates. To initiate a matching gift, you need to complete your employer’s matching gift form and send it with your contribution to the Library so that we can benefit from your company’s generosity.
Bequests: Your will is a meaningful way to make a charitable gift of lasting value to the Library. Through a bequest provision, you can designate a specific amount of money, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate after other bequests are satisfied. Adding a codicil to an existing will is a simple process that begins with making your intentions known to your attorney.
Memorial and Tribute Giving: Gifts in memory of deceased friends and loved ones—or gifts which honor living individuals—are gratefully accepted by the Library. Such contributions are often used to reflect the interests or talents of the person honored and may be designed in memory of or in honor of a loved one.
Gifts of Life Insurance: Life insurance may be an especially attractive gift vehicle if you own a policy no longer needed for its original purpose. In addition, those who qualify for low cost premiums may find it affordable and convenient to plan a significant gift to the Library using life insurance. By naming the Library as the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy, you can take an immediate tax deduction for any accumulated cash value of the policy and a future deduction for any subsequent premiums which you pay.
Gifts of Real Estate: Virtually any real property—a home, farm, office building, or land—can become a gift to the East Hampton Library. You can take a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the real estate donated and also avoid any penalty capital gains tax on its appreciation.
