How You Can Help Your Library and Park
Now that the new Felton Branch is a reality, Felton Library Friends is raising funds to ensure that both library and park will continue to be enhanced and maintained, and that community members of all ages will enjoy robust programming well into the future.
Gifts of any size are welcome and appreciated. Gifts may be “In Honor of” or “In Memory of.” All donations are tax-deductible. FLF is a chapter of Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries, a 501(c)(3) organization.
Online donations - Please specify the Felton Chapter on the form.
Check donations - Please make out checks to Felton Library Friends and mail to PO Box 1245, Felton, CA 95018.
Other ways to donate - Individuals who wish to make gifts from their IRA required minimum distribution, appreciated stock, or estate may find tax incentives. A tax or legal advisor can help you determine how to give most advantageously or help you create a legacy by making a bequest to the Felton Branch Library.
Donors will be recognized in updates to the donor list on this website.
Major donors to the FLF Capital Campaign in 2018–19 are honored at their giving level on the permanent donor wall in the library entrance for helping to make the Felton Branch Library and Park a reality. The campaign raised more than $500,000 to support enhancements to both the library and park and also created a robust fund for programming and other needs.
