Even in a city that loves its libraries, public funding isn’t enough for libraries to provide all the important resources that residents seek.
The Library, part of the City of Saint Paul, depends on The Friends to support those resources. As an independent nonprofit, The Friends invests in libraries so that they, and the communities they serve, thrive.
Ways to Give
You can also leave a legacy with a planned gift to The Friends.
Here is some sample bequest language you may want to share with your attorney:
“I give and devise to The Friends of The Saint Paul Public Library, located in St. Paul, MN, all (or state a dollar amount or a percentage) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be used for its general support.”
The Friends’ Federal Tax ID # is: 41-6029683
