The Katonah Village Public Library relies on public support to maintain its facility and on-going programming and services for the community. Each year, the Library must raise over over 1/4 of its operating expenses from fundraisers, appeals, room rentals and other sources.
Please consider making a financial gift to support your Library. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your gift is tax-deductible to the extent provided by law. The Library’s donor list from November 1, 2017-October 31, 2018 can be found below. If your name is not listed, we may have received your donation after the cutoff date, in which case, your name will be added to next year’s list. Click here to view a list of 2017-2018 Donors

Employee Giving Programs
An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs. Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax deductible component of your donation) to our organization. If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support. To see if your corporation offers a matching donation, please view Double the Donation. Thank you for checking!
Donation of Appreciated Stocks and Securities
If stock you have owned for more than one year has increased in value from the time of purchase, donating it to the Katonah Village Library is a great mechanism for giving to the Library you love!
How to Make a Gift of Stock:
- Contact Katonah Village Library at 914.232.3508 x 8 and speak to Ellen Waltimyer or Mary Kane. We will provide you with our DTC and account numbers for the transfer. We will also ensure that your gift is handled to your specifications and you receive proper credit and acknowledgement for it.
- Notify your broker that you are giving securities to Katonah Village Library. You may use our sample letter as a guide. Please email us a copy of the instructions you provide your broker. Send email to: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org at the library.
- It is our investment policy to sell donated stocks immediately. Following the change of transfer, we will provide you with a donor letter for tax purposes. The Library is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization, so you will get a tax deduction equal to the stock’s current fair market value (i.e., its increased value at the time of the transfer) as a charitable contribution. And neither you nor KVL has to pay capital gains on the appreciated value of the stock.
Thank you for your generous support of Katonah Village Library!
