Why donate to the Juniata County Library?
Library funding nationwide is not guaranteed. We would hate to lose something that truly cannot be replaced! Your tax-deductible gift to the Juniata County Library will express your values and your life purpose -- and make the best care available for yourself, your family, and your neighbors. Your kind giving makes all this possible. You are giving to a cause that you experience and are a part of, whether you know it or not. The library fuels your community by improving property and business value, graduation rates, education levels and overall satisfaction with life. Your donation can actually accomplish something specific! Our director Vince Giordano explains the reality of library funding and how your donation will make an immediate impact.

The finer details: currently, individuals who make cash contributions to publicly supported charities are permitted a charitable contribution deduction of up to 60% of their adjusted gross income (AGI). Contributions in excess of the 60% AGI limitation may be carried forward in each of the succeeding five years. The CARES Act suspends the AGI limitation for qualifying cash contributions and instead permits individual taxpayers to take a charitable contribution deduction for qualifying cash contributions made in 2020 to the extent such contributions do not exceed the taxpayer’s AGI. Any excess carries forward as a charitable contribution that is usable in the succeeding five years. Contributions to non-operating private foundations or donor-advised funds are not eligible for the 100% AGI limitation.
