Your Support Matters

Jenkintown Library is a nonprofit organization that receives state and local funding, but we also depend on generous, tax-deductible contributions from friends and patrons to make up the difference between what tax dollars cover and the actual cost of running the library.


Annual Fund

The Annual Fund helps us sustain and build our educational programs and collections, serve our patrons' technology needs, and keep our lights on. Though we call it an Annual Fund, donations are welcome any time throughout the year.

How to Make a Donation

The easiest ways to make a donation are by Venmo (@JenkintownLibrary) or by check (through the mail or in person at the library).

Lots of Ways to Give

  • Make a gift in a loved one’s memory, or in honor of a special milestone or occasion.
  • Sponsor a book
  • Designate a gift to the library in your will
  • Name the library as your charity for the next corporate fundraiser
  • Donate a valuable item or vacation destination that we can offer as part of a raffle fundraiser


For some, donating stock or securities can provide powerful tax benefits. We welcome gifts of securities and will provide you with information on how to transfer such assets to Jenkintown Library. Gifts of all sizes are gratefully accepted and are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Contact the library for more information. 

I have an unshaken conviction that democracy can never be undermined if we maintain our library resources and a national intelligence capable of utilizing them.
