Donations & Bequests

Choosing to leave a gift to Selwyn Public Library in your will provides you an opportunity to make a lasting contribution to your community. It also allows you to create a deeply meaningful legacy to be shared by Selwyn community members for generations to come.

By far the most common form of legacy gifts, you can name Selwyn Public Library as a beneficiary in your will. With prior planning, your will can both provide for your loved ones and help the library prosper. Options for a gift in a will (bequest) include leaving a particular sum of money, a specific asset such as property, or a certain percentage of your estate.

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. We recommend speaking with your financial advisor or lawyer to start preparing your will, or to add a gift in your existing will to Selwyn Public Library.

To leave a gift to the library, you will need to provide the following information in your will or estate plan:

Selwyn Public Library
836 Charles Street, 
Bridgenorth, ON K0L 1T0

Charitable registration number: 11900 2533 RR 0001
