Why a Gift to ALSC?

Many members choose to continue their support for ALSC through a designated gift in their estate plan. A planned gift sustains ALSC’s core work: to identify and promote excellence in the field of library service to children. In addition, many ALSC donors find that there can be significant financial benefits to providing funds through estate planning. To learn more about the potential advantages, visit ALA's planned giving page.
Your planned gift to the ALSC Children’s Library Services Fund or to any of ALSC’s existing endowments ensures ongoing, meaningful support to future generations of children through libraries. 
With a Planned Gift to ALSC You Can: 
  • Enhance the lives of children with creative programs that support early childhood development, literacy, and lifelong learning.
  • Fund programs, publications, events, and awards that promote and honor excellence in children’s literature.
  • Contribute to awards and scholarships that increase diversity and maintain the highest standards in the field of library science.
  • Leave a lasting legacy without giving up assets now.
