Leave the Library in Your Will
It seems to be in our nature to want to leave something behind for others. That’s always been true for the NHFPL. From Mary E. Ives’ transformational gift in 1906 which established the Ives Main library building, the library has been shaped by the philanthropic values of thoughtful and visionary donors.
If you’d like to honor your values by making the library a part of your will, please contact Lisa Kaston at 203-946-7454.
Corporate Giving and Sponsorships
Our generous corporate partners provide funds for innovative programs like the ReadMobile and incentives and awards for Summer Reading Club participants. They underwrite educational programs like our Poetry Contest and sponsor Mardi Gras, our annual fundraising event that brings in over $45,000 to support the library. If your business or organization is interested in partnering with the library, please contact Foundation staff at 203-946-7454.
