Making a Bequest to the Rochester Hills Public Library Print E-mail

Bequests, both large and small, have been important to Rochester Hills Public Library since its founding in 1924. A bequest from Eva Parker Woodward was used to build the first library. A second bequest for Grace Curry funded an addition to the first library. The bequest from the estate of Alice Horter went toward books for the children’s collection.


Your legacy

You need a will to direct how your property will be used and distributed after your lifetime. The establishment of a bequest is an easy and convenient way to develop the substantial future support for a collection, program or service that is important to you. A gift to the Rochester Hills Public Library through your will provides several advantages:

  • Charitable gifts made through your will are deductible for estate tax purposes.
  • A charitable bequest may place your estate in a lower tax bracket.
  • You may direct your bequest to a specific department, program or the Library as a whole.
  • If you wish to establish a $10,000 endowment fund through your will, you can request that it be named for you or anyone you wish to honor.
