Your Support is a Vital Part of the Library
The Desert Foothills Library is a Member Supported organization.
We are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit and approximately 35% of our revenue this year will be donated by patrons who become Members of the Library Association. We have other revenue sources such as the Chapter2 Books store, cell-tower leases, special events and our passport acceptance office, but donations continue to be our most important source of revenue.
This all makes your donations a vital part of your relationship with the Library.

What is Planned Giving?
Planning giving is thoughtful, charitable giving that is planned in advance, not made on the spur of the moment. Planned giving is an important part of a person’s estate plan to take advantage of immediate income and gift tax benefits as well as long term income, estate and gift tax benefits. Planned giving can provide a stream of income for you and a source of revenue for your hometown Library.
