Planned Giving

Leaving a bequest to the Newberry makes a statement about what you value.

We hope you’ll consider leaving a gift to the Newberry through your will or trust. Your legacy gift ensures that future generations will benefit from the Newberry’s unique education opportunities and resources.

You can leave a gift to the Newberry in many ways, including through a percentage of your estate, appreciated stocks or retirement plans, or life insurance. You can direct your gift to a specific area of the library’s work or allow your gift to go where it is most needed.

We’re happy to help you through this process, by discussing how you’d like to contribute to the future of the Newberry. We can even provide the language you need to add to your existing documents.

Please contact Natalie Edwards, Director of Major and Planned Giving, at or (312) 255-3544 to begin a conversation.
