Planned Giving

Thank you for considering a planned gift to the Enoch Pratt Free Library! Your thoughtful inclusion of the Library in your estate plans will help support the Library’s vital services and programs today and in the future.

Past planned gifts have helped define the Pratt’s role as 21st century library, providing ongoing support for programs, services, and capital improvements. Programs and initiatives supported by these contributions include our annual speaker series, which brings authors, poets, and thought-leaders to Baltimore for free public programs, a children’s services fund that provides vital programming to our youngest readers, and the Branch Improvement Fund that addresses critical facility issues and upgrades at the 21 library branches located throughout the city.

To learn more about planned giving options, please contact Cindi Monahan, the Library’s Director of Institutional Advancement, at cmonahan@prattlibrary.org or (410) 396-5314.
