Gifts & Planned Giving

Monetary contributions are always needed for general operating expenses as well as for specific projects. The Dyer Memorial Library appreciates contributions in order to continue serving the needs of the community. Your gift helps us maintain our library and expand our collection of family records and manuscripts in our archive.

The Dyer Memorial Library is a tax exempt 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization and gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.


Outright Gifts

Gifts of cash are the simplest, most direct way to support the Dyer's work. A cash gift is deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes. To make a tax-deductible gift, please make your check payable to:

Dyer Memorial Library
P.O. Box 2245
Abington, MA 02351



While planned and estate gifts are encouraged and needed for the long-term financial stability of the Dyer Library, outright gifts provide important immediate support for the day-to-day operations which are needed to protect the collection. Outright gifts can be made in the following ways:

Matching Gifts

You may be able to double your gift through a matching gift program available through your former or current employer. Contact your Human Resource Department to check for eligibility.

Planned Giving

A Planned Gift supports the work of the Dyer Memorial Library in perpetuity and provides the donor with tax incentives and other estate planning benefits. To find out about planned giving options, we strongly recommend that you consult your attorney and your tax or financial advisors. Please contact us if you would like information on how to include the Dyer Memorial Library in your estate planning. Each inquiry is handled confidentially and places you under no obligation.
