The Albuquerque Public Library Foundation (APLF) is the nonprofit designated to receive bequests and other planned gifts to benefit the Public Library, Albuquerque & Bernalillo County. Naming APLF as a beneficiary will enable you to support your public library system into the future, and, in some instances, receive tax benefits.*
The simplest way to make a planned gift is to name APLF in your will or trust. Here is an example of wording that might be used to designate a fixed sum or percentage of your assets to The Albuquerque Public Library Foundation.
“I give to The Albuquerque Public Library Foundation. Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit corporation, PO Box 25792, Albuquerque, NM 87125 (Federal Tax I.D. # 45-2688338), the amount of $ ______ or _____ % of the residue of my estate for purposes deemed appropriate by the APLF Board of Directors."
Gifts to the Albuquerque Public Library Foundation (APLF) do not fund basic library operations. Instead, we work closely with the Library Director to determine where private funding will expand and enhance the library’s work, helping the library offer services and programs and undertake building enhancements that might not be possible otherwise.
*Please seek advice from your financial advisor, lawyer or tax professional. For more detailed information, please refer to the APLF Gift Acceptance Policy.
