Donate to the Endowment Fund 

Gifts to the Endowment Fund provide capital that generates an ongoing, reliable source of revenue for the Library. The capital is preserved and only the interest earned is used to enhance the Library’s collections, programs and services. Hence a donation to the Endownment Fund is a gift in perpetuity.

The Library’s Endowment Fund is managed by the Oakville Community Foundation.  If you and your family are interested in establishing your own trust fund in support of the library, the Oakville Community Foundation can help you get started.

Tribute and memorial gifts 

Honour your loved ones and the special people in your life through tribute or memorial gifts on special occasions such as birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and celebrations of life.  We provide cards and bookplates that are personalized according to the occasion.

Gifts in kind

Donations of products, services and expertise are also considered as valuable contributions to our fundraising program.

Planned giving

Through this program, donors can plan gifts to provide resources that may be deferred — i.e., planned for completion at a future date. Planned giving options include bequests in wills, life insurance policies, real estate, and securities.
