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 runs very deep.

If you plan to donate any part of your estate to the Libraries please contact us at

Roll out the red carpet to thank our generous donors!
