You may arrange for the Library to receive:

  • a specific dollar amount
  • specified assets, such as securities, real estate or tangible personal property
  • all or a percentage of the remainder of your estate after all other obligations (a residuary bequest)

You may make a bequest to the Library by preparing a new will or adding a codicil to your present will.

An outright bequest to the Library is fully tax-deductible for estate-tax purposes.
