Support Your Library - Planned Giving
Please consider a donation to the Washington-Centerville Public Library Foundation Fund administered by the Dayton Foundation.
Unrestricted donations to the fund enable the Library to complete projects that might not be possible with existing operating income.
Credit Card Donations
Unrestricted credit card donations may be made online at any time via The Dayton Foundation website. Be sure to enter "Washington-Centerville Public Library Foundation Fund" as the fund name.
Unrestricted check donations may be made any time.
Make checks payable to: Washington-Centerville Public Library Foundation Fund.
Send checks to: Dayton Foundation, 500 Kettering Tower, Dayton, OH 45423.
Consider a memorial donation in honor of a loved one. The Library will provide donation envelopes for funeral services upon request. Checks should be made out to Washington-Centerville Public Library Foundation Fund and sent to Washington-Centerville Public Library, Bookkeeping, 111 West Spring Valley Pike, Centerville, OH 45458. If total memorial donations received total more than $250, the honoree may be recognized, if the family so wishes, on the Library’s donor plaque located in the front hallway at Centerville Library.
Donors may also choose to develop an unrestricted endowment which generates annual interest income and allows the Library the flexibility to use the proceeds as it best serves the Library's immediate needs.
A restricted endowment is for a donor who would like to ensure the future of a favorite Library program; preserve their values beyond their lifetime; attach their name(s) to a meaningful charitable outreach; or memorialize a loved one. Please take a few minutes to meet the generous donors of our current restricted endowments and see the wonderful programs that their donations provide:
- Dorothy R. Yeck Endowment for the Arts at Woodbourne Library
- Dottie Yeck Good Life Award Endowment
- John P. Dewey Business Endowment

Gift of Securities
