Endowments

Endowment Giving


What better way to honor a friend or loved one than with an enduring gift?

Named Endowment Funds are:

  • A meaningful way to honor a person or organization in perpetuity
  • A gift of $5,000 or more, invested to earn interest for the library
  • Used annually to purchase the types of materials you designate
  • Available for you to add to, in any amount, at any time, to help increase our collections


We'll acknowledge your honoree with a plaque in the Gettysburg Library, and annually we will let you know which materials have been added to our collection with a bookplate denoting your honoree thanks to your gift.

To create a Named Endowment, please contact Dawn Smith, Development Officer at 717-334-0163 or dawns@adamslibrary.org.
