LALE seeks outright gifts and bequests from those who value the role of a superb library in the education of our children and who appreciate the availability of the library's extensive information resources and other services to the entire community.

The importance of a large, unrestricted endowment cannot be overemphasized. It provides the flexibility necessary to allow LALE to respond to the ever-evolving world of library needs and priorities.

For significant planned gifts such as Charitable Gift Annuities and Charitable Remainder Trusts, the endowment has established a relationship with the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. SVCF provides the expertise, legal status, and financial strength necessary for the establishment of these special arrangements, which can benefit both the donor and the endowment.

When you are ready to consider a bequest, LALE will be happy to work with your estate planner and/or attorney. The key details would include:
