Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has been an integral part of our community for more than a century. We invite you to help sustain the Library for future generations through a planned gift.

Planned Giving Options

Your gift can be tailored to meet your specific financial and estate-planning needs. You can defer a gift to the Library in the following ways:

  • Include the Library as a beneficiary in your will or estate plan.
  • Name the Library as the beneficiary of a pension plan, individual retirement account (IRA), life insurance policy, bank or brokerage account or name the Library as the policy owner.
  • Establish a trust, annuity or other fund that benefits the Library.

Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Endowment

You may choose to establish a named endowment at the Library or make a gift to the general endowment. Endowment gifts are carefully managed by Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh to provide permanent, ongoing support for essential library services. Your gift to the fund is self-perpetuating because, as good stewards, the Library invests the principal and only draws a portion of the endowment income each year.

CLP’s Board has created a significant matching pool of $570,000 to match new gifts and pledges to the Library’s Endowment. Potential will match all documented endowment commitments—up to $25,000 per couple—as long as funds are available. For more information, click here.

We are committed to working with you and your financial advisors in order to structure a meaningful gift that best suits your circumstances. For information on planned giving opportunities, contact Pat Quinn Winter at winterp@carnegielibrary.org or 412-622-6276.
