Memorials and Tributes
Donations may be made to the Library’s Gift Fund for the purchase of materials and other items. In the case of a cash gift for the purpose of memorial, tribute, or other recognition, the donor has the option of selecting items to be purchased.
The general nature of the book, or its subject area, will be based upon the interests of the deceased or the wishes of the donor, and the needs of the library. Should the donor indicate no preference for a specific use of the gift, the donation shall be used in a way and for whatever materials, equipment, or programs are deemed to be of greatest need for the library.
Gifts of money, real property, and/or stock are welcomed, but must comply with state and city codes governing such gifts. In accordance with Idaho State Code, stock will be sold, and the proceeds deposited in the library’s account.
Some employers generously match their employees’ donations. You may be able to increase your donation by completing the proper paperwork. Be sure to check with your employer about matching gift policies. If your employer does not have a matching gift policy we would work with your employer to establish a matching gift policy.

Donations For The Building Fund
We are growing. It is true we plan to expand. It is a need we have had the moment we became a Library. Donnelly Public Library was so well received by our community that we have grown out of our small building quickly. Currently, our Trustees have formed a Building Committee and they are moving forward. If you would like to be a part of this committee please contact our Trustees direct at [email protected]
We have set a temporary goal of $150,000 and we are very close. All donations over $100 up to $20,000 will be matched between now and the end of the year. You can donate today and specify Building Fund.
