Donate Funds

The Manheim Township Public Library Foundation is a non-profit organization under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3).  Your donation may be tax deductible.

Why Give

  • Build the library collection into the most diverse and comprehensive collection available for Manheim Township.
  • Invest in technology to provide the latest research, communication, and computing tools.
  • Enhance our facilities to offer a welcoming atmosphere for leisure, learning, and community building.
  • Provide excellent customer service with a staff that is knowledgeable, flexible and responsive to patron needs.

What to Give

  • Employer matching gifts program; ask your personnel office for details.
  • Funds through cash, check or credit/debit card.
  • Stock, bonds, or real estate.
  • Stretch your donation to the library by giving during the LCCF’s ExtraOrdinary Give fundraiser in November.

Where to Give

  • Operating fund
    Contributing to MTPL’s operating fund helps cover present expenses. If you want to help improve the library’s financial standing now rather than for the future, the operating fund is an excellent choice.
  • Endowment
    Contributing to the Endowment Fund is a gift that grows. The principal remains intact, while the interest will support a rich library experience for future generations of Manheim Township residents. Consider the Manheim Township Public Library in your estate planning. Consult your attorney or tax adviser for more information or call the library at (717) 560-6441.
