Planned Giving

You can make a planned gift to the Oakville Public Library as part of your legacy to the community.

Planned giving is the process of arranging a gift now, which goes to an organization or cause of your choosing in the future, commonly donated through a will or trust. These types of charitable donations allow you to experience the joys of giving today, and can benefit both the library and community for years to come.

Not only will you be leaving a personal legacy, but leaving a planned gift to Oakville Public Library will give you a tax advantage on your estate’s final tax return. Plus, you’ll be making an incredible investment in your community, and providing support to Oakville’s children, youth, adults and seniors who rely on our invaluable programs and services for generations to come.
