Make a Gift
A contribution to our Annual Fund helps provide crucial services and materials to help enrich and educate the Branford community. Every time you donate to the library, you have an impact. You can give a gift in honor of a birthday or holiday, or in memory of a loved one.
- Give online, safely and securely, or download a donation form (PDF) that you can mail in or drop off.
- Make a gift from a Donor Advised Fund, a popular and tax efficient way to give.
- A gift of stock is another great option that allows you to support the Blackstone while enjoying considerable tax benefits.
With a contribution of $125 or more you will join our Leadership Circle. You’ll be part of a committed group of donors whose gifts enable the Library to provide even more exceptional service and support to the residents of Branford.
Businesses and organizations can join our Leadership Circle, too, and receive the same benefits as an individual, plus receive a certificate acknowledging your organization’s support for the Blackstone Library.

The James Blackstone Memorial Library is supported by the Town of Branford and by private contributions. Less than 1% of Branford taxes support the Blackstone Library, so donor support is critical as we continue to meet and exceed the expectations of our community.
