Pierce County Library Foundation is a proud member of Leave 10 South Sound, a movement to educate, encourage and inspire people to leave at least 10% of their estate to nonprofit organizations. If more South Sound residents include gifts to charity in their estate plans, the landscape of social causes in our region will be positively transformed forever. In addition, our charitable legacies will inspire humanitarian values and behaviors in other individuals, families and communities. Think of all the good that can be accomplished!

A Charitable Gift Annuity creates a fixed income for your or a loved one’s remaining lifetime.
This plan allows you to give a substantial donation to Pierce County Library Foundation while receiving tax-favored income for life. Charitable gift annuities offer attractive payout rates for those who want to receive income and provide long-term support for library communities.
You can receive income for life and reduce your taxes while supporting Pierce County Library Foundation by transferring assets to fund the trust. Not only does this pay income to you or your beneficiaries for life, but you also receive an income tax deduction the year you transfer assets to the trust.
The remaining portion of the trust, after all payments have been made, goes to Pierce County Library Foundation.
A Charitable Lead Trust pays income to one or more charitable organizations, typically for a set period, and then the remaining assets of the trust pass to non-charitable beneficiaries, such as family members.
