Support the Winter Park Public Library

We are fortunate in Winter Park that our forward-thinking leaders established a nonprofit Library that is independent from city or county government. Charitable contributions - 100% of which support our core collections and educational opportunities - enable us to respond quickly to the specific and changing needs of our patrons.

With the critical support of friends like you, this oldest public library in Central Florida continues to rank highest among public libraries in the state and nation. We hope you will make your gift today to provide early literacy storytimes taught by our beloved librarians, encourage teen reading and film festivals, and create unique educational classes and events for residents of all ages.

Help us spread the word, and support your Library today.

Other Ways to Support Us

Planning a gift makes good sense. As you make sound decisions for your financial future, you can also ensure the growth of organizations that make a difference in our community. You can make a significant charitable impact at the Winter Park Public Library by structuring a gift that reduces your tax liabilities while permanently endowing services, events and education that you and your family have enjoyed and would like to share with another.

A planned gift is a charitable contribution of any asset, current or deferred, that can directly benefit both you and the Library. Though bequests and wills are the most prominent sources of planned gifts, contributions of securities, tangible property, real estate and life insurance benefit the Library today and can provide you with even greater tax deductions. Charitable gift annuities allow you to give cash or an asset in return for a life income paid by our organizations. IRAs and other retirement plans, which can be most heavily taxed in an estate, can be designated to the Library to reduce your present income tax liability.

Our development staff would be happy to design a gift strategy that is right for you and will help you and your family meet your philanthropic goals.

The Winter Park Public Library gratefully accepts gifts of stock and other securities. You receive an immediate charitable deduction and are not subject to capital gains. The Library receives the full market value for your contribution!

Other assets that the will Library gratefully receive include real estate, automobiles, art and any personal property that you would like to share for the enjoyment of others or for the value of its sale.

With a gift of property, you generate an immediate income tax deduction and a possible reduction in capital gains tax.

With cars, boats or other assets, you receive the income tax deduction, and the Library receives the full market value of your gift.

For questions about making a tax-deductible contribution to the Library and information about other giving opportunities, please contact Director of Development Phyllis Corkum at or call 407-623-3277.
