Donate to Regina Public Library

A diverse crowd of happy people

Yes, you can make a charitable contribution to your public library. We are a charitable organization that accepts donations. Any contribution of $20 or more qualifies for a charitable tax receipt. 

Contribute to Regina's future

The library is a place where resources are found, ideas transform into action, and community residents lead by example.

Christina had an idea for a small business, but didn't know how to get started. By chance, she walked into Central Library and discovered a wealth of small business resources and workshops.

“Finding … all those resources at RPL, my heart skipped a beat because it was so reassuring. It gave me the confidence that it was going to be okay,” Christina said. “A small idea evolved into something bigger and better than I could’ve ever imagined.”

Today, Christina is an owner and operator of a hearing clinic in Regina.  

We believe that when you support the library, you support our community. Christina's is one RPL story. There are many more waiting to be told. Make a difference for people like Christina by donating to Regina Public Library. 



Regina Public Library offers a comfortable space where everyone is welcome: individuals who might not feel safe to express themselves elsewhere in the community; those who are new to the country and thrilled that a free lending library exists for everyone; and those who are simply looking for a place to warm up in the winter.  

Truly, everyone is welcome at the library.

RPL is a central part of the Regina community. Your support will ensure that we continue providing quality programming and services to its citizens. 
Wanda Blake, our Manager, Development, would be pleased to meet with you to talk about donation options. .

Library Legacy

RPL welcomes legacy gifts such as stocks and securities, bequests, charitable trusts, life insurance and RRSP/RRIFs. We recommend you work with your financial advisor on the best way to leave a Library legacy.

Stock and Securities

Donating publicly-traded shares is a tax-efficient way to make a donation, and when you transfer publicly traded stocks directly to the library, you pay zero capital gains on the appreciated value.

Donation of Securities Form


Often referred to as the "Ultimate Gift," a bequest demonstrates the value and importance you place on the library. We are deeply humbled and honoured by those who include the library in a bequest arrangement.

A bequest can take the form of cash, securities, asset, donation of all or residue of the estate. Charitable receipts up to 100 per cent of net income can be claimed as a charitable donation in the year of death (and preceding year, if necessary). A charitable bequest can produce a considerable tax savings.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

A trust may be established using cash, securities, real estate, or other assets. Gifts of real estate by trust are governed by RPL policies and will be reviewed. A charitable remainder trust allows you to support the future of RPL while receiving an immediate tax receipt among other benefits. Check with your legal or financial advisor to determine if this is the right giving option for you.

Insurance Policies

Insurance policies enable an individual to make a significant, lasting gift to the library, with a minimal outlay of current savings or income.

You may choose to make Regina Public Library the beneficiary, or the beneficiary and owner of an insurance policy. By making the Library the beneficiary of a policy, the estate will be issued a charitable gift receipt provided the policy is included in the Will. A charitable gift receipt will be issued for the policy premiums paid each year.

RRSP / RRIF / Pension Proceeds

Many individuals have, as part of their retirement plan, tax-deferred instruments such as RRSPs, RRIFs, or pensions in which Regina Public Library can be named as a beneficiary, either directly on retirement plan documents or named in a will. Donations of a retirement plan can significantly reduce tax for the estate, providing greater assets for any residuary beneficiaries.

For more information on any of these options, please contact our Development Office at 306.777.6106 or Thank you for considering giving generously to your public library.
