Honorarium or Memorial Gift
You may choose to
honor or memorialize someone special to
you by making a gift in their name.
Should you elect to make a memorial
gift, please include the honoree's name
and address so that we may notify that
person of your kindness. In the
case of a deceased honoree, please also
include the name(s) and address of the
family member(s) to whom you would like
an acknowledgement sent. Your gift
will be acknowledged with a tax
appropriate letter, and notification
will be sent to the honoree or honoree's
family that will include your name and

What will your legacy be?
You can make a
bequest to the Shepherdstown Public
Library for a percentage of your estate

can designate your bequest for general
use, or you can restrict its use.
You may also establish an endowment that
will honor the memory of a family member
or loved one - these endowments will
live forever since only the investment
income is used annually.
bequests are used to give all or a
portion of the rest, residue and
remainder of your estate after payment
of expenses and any specific amounts
designated to other beneficiaries.
bequests are used to make a gift of
a specific dollar amount or specific
assets, such as securities, real estate
or personal property.
