Estate Planning

Bequests to Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries

The Friends are deeply appreciative of your willingness to provide for the Santa Cruz Public Libraries through your estate plan. Bequests are critically important to the Friends: They provide a source of support that is not subject to fluctuations in the economy, and they come from individuals whose loyalty to the Santa Cruz Public Libraries run very deep.

There are several ways you can include the Friends in your estate plan. Perhaps your own attorney has already helped you think about a bequest through a will. This would include considering options such as giving a specific amount, a specific property, a specific percentage of assets or a gift from the residue of your estate.

If you have any questions about the language needed to include your library in your estate plans, please contact Marsa Greenspan at 831-427-7716 or
